perhaps the proceedings were better; Schneier was there after all,..
Schneier is a leader of the monetizing pack, never crosses the line, sits among the stellars of institutional control, incessantly promotes his wares, spoon-feds fans. Predictably for self-promoters, like other stellars, he is security chief for a principal telecom spy. Impolitely, a security flack, which may be redundant. Self-reportedly he is helping skim, cherry-pick, sanitize, ass-cover abetters of NSA, shoveling insider tips to outlets. Warns must not go too far in response, merely securitize! the net. Which is the scam comseckers have been running in cahoots with the officials since the birth of government networks.
... is there anyone you approve of John?
Snowden and Manning, the brands and fans, let others off the hook, when more like them are needed to avoid sacralization of the crucified. Just hope there are a lot more doing truly good behind and below the media and crazed followers tampering down of dissent with adoration, gratitude, attitude and hyperbolization. Leaks should be done without fanfare, which contradicts the very term.
