It seems that Schneier's lack of a Ph.D. degree was never mentioned during the interview...
What does that have to do with anything?
Or are you suggesting that he's impersonating a Ph.D. doctorate? Or perhaps that without a Ph.D. he is incapable of knowing anything about cryptography?
I'm not just being snarky, I really want to know what the lack of a Ph.D. degree has to do with anything Bruce does?
The interview never mentioned his lack of formal ballet training either.
I recall reading a paper co-authored by Schneier a while back and I saw his name prefaced by "Dr." Despite the fact he didn't complete a formal academic thesis (and whatnot), I'm sure that his contribution to the field has more than qualified him for an honorary Ph.D. And in my opinion, anyone who can -- through hard work in the real world -- attain an honorary Ph.D. definitely deserves the title.
Anyway, I just wanted to mention an interview-related fact: Schneier's name showed up in a CNN article on whole-body imaging: http://www.cnn.com/2009/TRAVEL/05/18/... .
