2. I love that Facebook's first official response to Schneier's prior blog post was a HN comment, causing Schneier to remark, "surely there is a more official news channel that Facebook could have chosen to use"
And imo Bruce is still an authority to report it. We all make mistakes. His transparency is breathtakingly refreshing in the era of 'fake news' and talking head blogs.
The trouble is the Forbes blogging network has almost nothing to do with Forbes proper but the forbes.com domain lends these blogs a credibility they haven't earned.
For the record, any Forbes link that starts with /sites/ should be treated the same as you would any random blog.
Curious to see how this will net out.
Skepticism featured prominently in the original thread, so your accounting should probably give it some retraction credit. It even helped create the follow-up, since Schneier cites it.
