Yes, I'm Leaving BT
The Register reported that I am leaving BT at the end of the year. It quoted BT as saying:
We hired Bruce because of his thought leadership in security and as part of our acquisition of Counterpane. We have agreed to part ways as we felt our relationship had run its course and come to a natural end. It has nothing to do with his recent blogs. We hired Bruce because of his thought leadership in security, not because we agree with everything he says. In fact, it’s his ability to challenge our assumptions that made him especially valuable to BT.
Yes, it’s true. And contrary to rumors, this has nothing to do with the NSA or GCHQ. No, BT wasn’t always happy with my writings on the topic, but it knew that I am an independent thinker and didn’t try to muzzle me in any way. I’m just ready to leave. I spent seven years at BT, and seven years at Counterpane Internet Security, Inc., before BT bought us. It’s past time for something new.
As to what comes next: answer cloudy; ask again later.
