Wait, what?

Bruce Schneier is a pretty famous dude to computer folks.  He’s our totally-not-racist-and-7.9-times-smarter Chuck Norris.  Dude has written so many awesome books including the classic Applied Cryptography.  He’s a modern security maven whose blog we should all read.  So, on Tuesday, when he posted Refused To Be Terrorized, it was a startling post for multiple reasons but mainly for this: he linked directly to Cracked.com.  You remember Cracked, right?  MAD Magazine’s not-as-funny little brother?  Well, over the past decade, Cracked online has reformed itself and is now both irreverent, crass, and highly informative.  The post Schneier linked to, 6 Ways To Keep Terrorists From Ruining The World, is everything Schneier,  But did you know that Cracked also has articles like The 6 Most Disturbingly Evil Birds?  It’s where I got the idea for a satanic shrike conspiracy for my dumb bird book.

Anyway, just thought I’d throw that out there.
