Blowfish isn't good, and it's important never to use it (as a cipher; bcrypt is fine). But that aside: Schneier has had a weird aversion to elliptic curves, has never (that I know of) written anything technical about them, claims to "not trust the math" behind them (whatever that means), and my suspicion is that he simply hasn't studied them in any depth. All I said was: I wouldn't look to Schneier for information about curves.
