Forwarded from: Jay D. Dyson <jdysonat_private> [If you're reading this, its only because your content software hasn't blocked it, as the message below is a little on the blue side, you have been warned. I'm basically posting this (With Mr. Dyson's OK) as its something I have been hearing quietly over the last 8-10 months. Friends and associates in information security becoming jaded with the whole works, and some even pondering leaving it altogether to follow old projects (Something you don't want to hear, with there not being enough infosec professionals as it is). I did ask Jay if leaving the list meant if he was hanging the up coffee cup and taking up longboard surfing on an classic Hobie, and the answer was no, he will still be deep in the trenches of information security. I for one will miss Jay's witty and insightful commentary as he always hits it on the head. - William Knowles] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 On Mon, 20 May 2002, William Knowles wrote: > I see that you signed off the ISN list, and I am VERY curious why? Look over the last four years. In all that time on this and every other security list, what difference has been made in railing against the FUD, waste and general idiocy of the commercial and government sector with respect to computer and network [in]security? The answer: none. DMCA passed, SSSCA is coming, and it's just going to get worse from there. You think the government or the industry gives a rat's ass about what a bunch of open-source advocates think? Guess again. We've been marginaziled for decades, criminalized for years, and all the days that have been used fighting against it have been a waste. A pure, fucking, unadulterated waste. Given enough time and discouragment, anyone can see when it's time to stop fighting the tide and get the fuck off the beach. I've reached just that time. And you can quote me on that. - -Jay -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.7 (TreacherOS) Comment: See http://www.treachery.net/~jdyson/ for current keys. iD8DBQE86a6vGI2IHblM+8ERAlXFAJ4vRyyn6Z+MKsiQZhtksYox3hd2FACfbQmo wZGQIuTf3FAUHBrVaeUsXgo= =cqBf -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
