LinuxWorld was a lot of fun today, but it's exhausting. Lawrence Lessig gave the keynote speech, talking about how open source software and fair use are helping turn us back into a read-write culture, instead of the read-only culture the media companies want us to be. I'll write more on that when I get a chance.
My guest tonight was Bruce Schneier, author of Beyond Fear and CTO of Counterpane. He took time out of his vacation to talk to me for which I'm grateful. This was the one interview I've wanted to do since the beginning. I just wish it hadn't been 7:00 in the morning when the phone call took place. I hadn't even had my second cup of coffee yet. Hopefully I'll get a chance to talk to him again in the future.
Not a lot of links for you tonight, just AOL got Splunk'd. If you're interested in looking at what's really in the AOL database, go look. Maybe you can find someone you know.
