the book chatter that i promised

So, last week I finished reading Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly about Security in an Uncertain World by Bruce Schneier. This guy knows his stuff! (I mean, as far as I can tell, having no professional experience in ‘security’.)

If there’s one book that the government (that weighty federalized mass of arms and legs and pens) should be reading, it’s this one.

To get a flavor of the stuff he writes about (which I can hardly do justice), you should go to his website. Specifically, his July 2003 and October 2003 email newsletters (which you can subscribe to, if it strikes your fancy).

There’s an index of all those newsletters here.

Hell, not just the government, but everybody should be reading this book and starting to think about this very important thing.
