An interview with Eugene Belford would have been better.

That’s….a surprisingly cogent interview. I have to wonder what he was able to accomplish while he was a member of the President’s Information Technology Advisory Committee.

Well, Bruce, all, if you still had any warm fuzzy feelings about the federal gov, and NSA, those should be dashed now:

“how confident the U.S. public can be that the government won’t pass new cyber security laws that conflict with the public interest?”
“We can’t be confident of this at all… First, consider that we elect almost no scientists or engineers to public office. Instead, they are primarily lawyers or business owners.”
Bruce for Congress! Where do I contribute?

–He’s already said he doesn’t want to run; nor should…anyone. Let it die on its own merit.

Spaf just really pissed me off by filing an amicus in support of Oracle in the Oracle v. Google case over the copyrightability of the Java APIs. (ref: http://www.groklaw.net/articlebasic.php?story=20130220053127277). I’ve lost all respect for his integrity.
His line about Usenet is still funny, though.
