Bruce Schneier, BT Counterpane

There’s a certain
subset of people who will stop reading this list as soon as they see

interesting to interview, and Schneier is right up there. He was among

He talks and writes less about information security than he used to,
but his answers to questions are always well thought-out and considered.
