Yet another one.

Many of the times, for one to be considered heroic, all they need to do is perform some feat that a mass of people feel they would never be able to perform. Much more so, even, when the mass feels better about life as a result of that persons actions.
For a lot of people, the ability to clearly think and communicate the real problem is extremely difficult. Additionally, doing so when it pisses others off adds that much more difficulty.
I haven’t decided if I consider you, Bruce, a hero, but if not I definitely consider you a valiant warrior.

You were cited in USA Today this week regarding the easy-to-forge boarding passes. I await your comment on the new “encrypted” boarding passes. I was wondering whether the ‘encrypt your own boarding pass’ website wold be up the same week.

One issue about data: the problem with digital data is that it is so easy to fake. Essentially this is like the one-time-pad. A one-time-pad message could decrypt to any number of intended messages, it all depends on the one-time-pad.
With a hard drive, or any digital data, you face the possibility of manipulation. Digital information is not physical evidence, at least in an adversarial situation.

I couldn’t agree more with this:
Is privacy the new environmentalism?
Schneier: Yes, and data is the pollution problem of the Information Age.
They will probably start calling us “data huggers.” Come to think of it, that wouldn’t be inappropriate.
