Profile of Schneier
There was a profile of me in the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Sunday.
I'm pretty pleased with the article, but this is -- by far -- my favorite line, about Applied Cryptography:
"The first seven or eight chapters you can read without knowing any math at all," Walker said. "The second half of the book you can't export overseas -- it's classified as munitions."
It's not true, of course, but it's a great line.
There's also this in the Providence Journal.

All of the hex was simulated as well.
This line says it best in the Providence Journal, “The point of terrorism is to cause terror,��? he said. “If we refuse to be terrorized, we deny them their victory.��? As things are now, he said, “We’re doing their work for them.��?
Here Here! What will it take to get Mr. Schneier in charge of Homeland Security? I would sleep better at night.
