    I don't think I agree with this at all lol.
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!

    Although the above my be true, I would have to agree on some of his points. There are lots of coffee shops and libraries that offer this same type of service. So maybe in some small isolated instances this may work. I don't necessarily condone it but I can understand it.

    BTW if you ever get the chance read some of his works, especially Secrets |& Lies Digital Security in a networked world This is an excellent book!!
    I have read it at least twice.

    This article is a good example of why people should not blindly follow everything that Bruce Schneier writes.

    That is also true !
    I however think that the man has presented some rather good information in some of his books. At least the fundamentals of locking down a network that he talks about make sense and are pretty well on point.

    Never read any of his books, but that article just put him in the don't buy column.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Surely the man realises how much damage a malovent hacker could do with network access?

    The thought of that alone makes me use wired networking.
