Fine, That's Bruce Schneier - New comment on Mini, a Devil, and Fine Whine.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Mini, a Devil, and Fine Whine":

Tell Schneier not to give up his day job.
Oh, dear. Where do I begin?

Dude ... this is his day job! Just to quote a bit from one recent source, ITsecurity's Top 59 Influencers in IT Security (Bruce is #5 in the list):

Bruce Schneier is the founder and CTO of the pioneering security firm BT Counterpane. The author of eight books on security, Schneier has testified before Congress on national network security issues. His first bestseller, "Applied Cryptography," was described by Wired magazine as "the book the National Security Agency wanted never to be published." He blogs about business security solutions, personal computer protection, and IT security in the era of terrorism, with a penchant for catching all the instances when police departments blow things up that they think are bombs, but really aren't.

I hope and pray that your day job has nothing at all to do with security, if you don't even know who this guy is.

(Isn't Applied Cryptography the book we advise everyone to stay away from due to quality?)
