I just discovered that Bruce Schneier, author of Applied Cryptography is blogging.  His blog (including a full content RSS 1.0 feed) can be found here.

Bruce's one of those people I truely respect in security, he's been highly critical of Microsoft in the past (for reason), but boy, he can write.

Subscribed.

Edit: To give credit where it's due, I found this here on forgey's blog.

 

  • OMG. Bruce is blogging. I never knew that. Awesome! Already added to bloglines! You can get his rss feed here. Thanks to Larry Osterman for pointing it out!...
  • Awesome! Thanks for pointing out this blog to me through Dana.
  • Thx Larry.

    I was stoked when I stumbled across that, pretty much everything that Bruce writes is something that I find interesting and he has a very engaging writing style that makes even complex topics understandable.

  • Lazycoder weblog » OUCH Schneier- Microsoft still has work to do
  • Too bad he suffers from Experts disease.

    He should stop commenting oin stuff he does understand or know about.
  • ... and he just balls them up into the same thing. (even though the article he references makes no mention of Arabic writing). I sent him an email when he published October's Cryptogram and no fixes as of yet.
  • Want to see him on the Daily Show?

  • Interestingly Bruce just sent me an email that states in its entirety:
    "Initial news reports said Arabic, but upon later examination it was found
    to be Farsi. I'll bet that few Americans know the difference."
    ... and looking back to his blog and newsletter it still remains arabic and not farsi.

    It isn't about what he is "trying to say" it is about what he is "saying". It is all well and good he is trying to uncover the eyes of the world, but he surely cannot acheive this if the facts are wrong and he does not correct them. It really isn't about what language was discovered, it was that it was reported innacurately thus making the "point" of the argument innacurate and laughable at best.
