This is the first time I have ever heard Bruce's voice. To be honest, not what I have imagined....
Martin is a quality security professional and one of the best security bloggers and podcasters around. I am glad you took the time out for the interview.
I enjoyed the discussion very much. The history was enlighteneing, and the security discussion was intelligent. All around good stuff.
Yeah I was expecting him to sound more like ... Chuck Norris ;-)
Heh, yeah I am surprised by Bruce's voice as well.
Goes to show that's a bad idea to judge someone by their voice.
Ever hear Mike Tyson's voice? :)
Did you mean to imply that Bruce is the Mike Tyson of the data security world?
I was expecting him to sound like James Earl Jones, oh well.
D, that's an amusing thought, but I think Mike Tyson is so, um, unique, that good analogies with him are hard to come by.
Another thought -- I'm usually surprised when I hear my own voice. I sound much different than I imagine.
I had no expectation of Bruce's voice. The phrasing he used reminded me of some of his blog comments, so in that respect he 'sounded' like himself.
Who would imagine what his voice would sound like?
To me that's like wondering what Isaac Newton's voice must have sounded like, or Edmund Husserl's, or the man who first tasted the oyster.
I believe it was the book Timeline by Michael Chrichton (http://www.crichton-official.com/timeline/index.html) that talked about going back in time and finding out that Abraham Lincoln actually had a kind of squeaky voice (not that Bruce's voice is squeaky, BTW).
I'm a big fan of Martin McKeay and his Network Security Podcast. And Bruce sounds a bit like a cross between Schwarzenegger and a festive security squid! Seriously, Bruce sounds like Bruce.
Bruce Schneier's voices is his passport.
@nicevoice: "I was expecting him to sound like James Earl Jones, oh well."
Hmmm, Darth Schneier... 8)
Great podcast. I really apprectiated you doing the interview Bruce.
Good stuff. I definitely prefer the blog over the newsletter.
Who's pretending to be me?
The fact that Michael Farnum is a friend of mine doesn't necessarily invalidate his opinion, which I'm assuming is why the comment was posted.
Anyway, thanks again to Bruce for taking the time out of his schedule to talk to me and I'm glad everyone's enjoying the interview.
You didn't hear him on Morning Edition on NPR a week or so ago?
I should probably leave well enough alone, but I just can't. Should I have let people know that Martin is a friend of mine before posting? I didn't think it relevant because I believe what I posted. I guess I should never publicly praise anyone that I have the least amount of connection with from now on. I guess I won't ever say anthing good about Bruce from now on since I met him for about 10 seconds when he signed a book for me at RSA last year. At least have the guts to post as yourself the next time you want to say something.
Maybe Bruce's voice is encrypted.
Good interview, I had already heard and seen Bruce in action. The voice was not a shock. The contribution he makes also not a surprise. Thanks again Bruce and Martin!
@Princehahaha, I came to the same conclusion :)
Very entertaining issue. I haven't heard of this one. It will be necessary to visit you on a thicket!
