Speaking on Deep Background, the Press Secretary whispered:
Schneier has a profound interest in the ISPs being forced to buy his
(or his competitors) security gear to fulfill the customers' dreams
of a "clean Internet connection". Pretty biased, if you don't mind.
What gear? Last I heard he sold security consulting services,
not hardware. He also writes books.
And the worse the net-wide situation, the more customers he gets
for both. So it sounds to me as if he's cutting his own throat
with this position.
So at least to my ears, claiming he is just trying to sell hardware
is not only a cheap shot, but a clear miss.
I've got a radical idea: why not discuss/debate his
statement>proposal on its merits|debits, vice proported ulterior
motives? Such debate is how many of us learn.
