I'm a Wall Street Journal Acrostic Answer

A quote from Data and Goliath is the answer to a Wall Street Journal acrostic. It's not the same as being a New York Times crossword puzzle answer, but it's close.

SPOILER ALERT!

Here's the quote, solved with lots of Googling. There are a few words elided from the text in the book:

Just like that, everything is turning into a computer. Your car is a computer with wheels and an engine. Your oven is a computer that bakes lasagnas. Even our pets are now regularly chipped; my cat is practically a computer that sleeps in the sun all day.

The first letters of the answers spell out "B Schneier Data and Goliath".

That's pretty big time. Maybe not as much as QN: "Bandleader whose eight wives included Lana Turner and Ava Gardner (2 wds.)," but a great distinction nonetheless!

I'm a Wall Street Journal Agnostic.
What do think about that?
I wear a Wall Street Journal Agnostics suit,
And I wear a Wall Street Journal Agnostics hat.
