I keep meaning to make an upto date list of "big important things I should keep track of". This debate is always in my top ten and yet Schneier is about the only one I know talking about it.

Which kind of makes the "debate" point moot - where is the debate happening? Which politicians talk about this? I must have missed it.

It often seems to me that we get caught up in the rhetoric on either side. We are either talking about how the NSA or Google is spying on us or how sharing information is essentially changing the world.

I agree, where is the debate in which we have a discussion about security without giving up all our rights to privacy for example? Surely we can have the best minds sit together and talk about these things without going on a diatribe about how the other side is either a clueless ideologue or is pure evil.

I haven't read the book yet, but it looks like Schneier is attempting to do so. Hopefully it lives upto its expectations.
