Reading Me

The number of different ways to read my essays, commentaries, and links has grown recently. Here's the rundown:

I think that about covers it for useful distribution formats right now.

EDITED TO ADD (6/20): One more; there's a Crypto-Gram podcast.

I think you need to keep expanding your range. How about air-dropped propaganda leaflets? Singing telegrams? Direct transmissions to the dental fillings of schizoaffectives? Interpretive dance?

I say post the most recent blog entry or article on stall doors in TSA restrooms.

"I think that about covers it for useful distribution formats right now."

Let's try a little harder, shall we?

Wheaties boxes.

Inflight magazines.

Pleasant but persistent young men in orange robes handing out copies of _Beyond Fear_ to people waiting in the TSA lines?

"Best of The Bruce" audio compilations on 8-track and Elcaset!

Those cheap little newsprint fliers the marginally employed hand out on street corners in Las Vegas (At least they used; I haven't had to visit there in an agreeably long time).

I'm sure there are others...

Well, this is nothing new. After you get people distributing links to your articles in IRC or creating new topics to the forums, that would be magic.

Posters... like the one linked to my name, below (which I scrounged from another commenter here whose brilliance I admire even if I can't recall his name) put on billboards (there are a lot of 'em down here in Florida for rent, y'know) with a nice little snippet for the rest of the 'board.

Somehow I don't think Bruce will have to duplicate Ted Kaczynski in circulating his "Sanity Manifesto" since it is the "conventional security" folks who are delivering bombs in order to maintain the atmos-fear.

Hmmmmm...

Have you considered a PodCast? Maybe some of us want to hear your speeches, too...

I suppose that confirms that my search will never turn up Schneier Fortune Cookies?!

@ John Campbell,

"... Have you considered a PodCast? Maybe some of us want to hear your speeches, too."

Err maybe not... You know what will happen to it.

It will be edited and put up on Utube as the sound track to that old black and white movie of the "Seven Samari" or worse the clip of Hitler doing the "Nuremberg gig"

You could always encrypt stuff with a one-time pad and have it read over a shortwave numbers station.

I spent most of my days reading your blogs. I rarely have time to work. And even sleeping is becoming a problem. :-)

Edison drum, encased in a protective coconut shell delivered by two African Swallows.

Or was it European?

The blog reading community needs to sign up for Bruce's essays. We can do dramatic readings and upload them to YouTube. That captures the video format.

Don't forget Google Reader! If you have a gmail account, just add your address "http://www.schneier.com/blog/index.rdf" to your subscriptions in google reader and a listing of all your posts in full come up. It's how I've been reading your posts for over the last year.
The perk to this, is that I can keep all my other subscriptions right next to yours. Do all my reading in one easy place, and never miss a post.

So....

Reading Me == Reading My Works ,
Me == My Works

i.e. you, Bruce, are nothing more than your works? Naaaah....
