I just came across this great blog post by Dave Shackleford over on ShackF00 about getting started in the infosec biz. It's great advice for the n00bs, and reminds everyone else that they should be helping and encouraging them in their growth.
The college down the road from me has a newer IA program. I've thought about taking it and finally getting a 4 year degree. However I haven't been too impressed with the students I've met from the program so far. I can definitely see the IA degree mindset there.
Not saying it'd be a bad program, just from what I've seen, I'd want to see more before I went out and played with them. I'm a noob and know it. But I've already played as a network engineer and system admin.
