With your new superstar status do you have any plans to replace Tiger Woods in the supermarket tabloids?

It looks like light skin and blue eyes will help you get on the list!

If they really wanted to honor you they should have renamed the magazine "The Bruce Schneier Experience". And 10th? 10th!?! Behind two guys with less grey hair than me? That's an outrage!

mcb's right though, I do like that tie.

Maybe they were just saving the best for last.

i'd have the guys at IDC China Telecommunication, because they keep showing why routes through countries that censor and firewall their communications is not at all a good idea.
That is influence...worldwide!!!
Now imagine when they have their own SSL CA.
Not a soul listens to words, but when crap comes to surface, no one can deny the smell...

There seems to be a strong correlation between having distinctive facial hair and/or hair style and being a security superstar.

I'm growing sideburns and a mullet starting NOW.

As a security "superstar", shouldn't you know better than to publish a session-ID with the link?

Ha! I don't think it matters, but I fixed it anyway.

I like shorter URLs.

Is this why the favicon of your site features a "big S"? When I saw it, I couldn't avoid thinking about a certain red-on-yellow-and-blue color scheme....

Nice beards.

If there's one thing you need in the security industry, it's a nice beard.

But, them are all so pale... Folks, go for one hour in the week out of door...
