  • Counterpane or Counter Pain and the Harvard School of Business

    The Whitenoise Challenge That Black Hat Would Not Take is just 6 days away.

    The iconic Washington Post was just sold. There is a sea change in media and journalism just as there is in communications and security and privacy.

    The owners of the Washington Post said they sold it to Mr. Bezos of Amazon because:

    1. They have known him for a couple of decades and first and foremost they consider him to be an impeccably honest and decent man – THAT is a life achievement.

    2. He is brilliant technically and technology will play a central role if we are to get meaningful, thoughtful, unbiased and un-manipulated “news”.

    This challenge is ultimately about great science and CERTAINLY about questionable ethics. Time to put up or shut up!

    The Harvard School of Business might do a case study on how Counterpane started and was founded and how the central technology was developed, how much it was initially capitalized for, and ultimately how much it was sold for.

    These are real indicators that might show certain kinds of expertise and which we might use when considering who we should listen to when trying to answer the dilemma of balancing security and privacy. Talk is cheap. What did they do? Not what did they say?

    Tomorrow we will look at teaming for the Whitenoise Challenge That Black Hat Would Not Take.

    The day after we will look at the Schneier "Clean My Clock" counter that will track both the challenge duration and his performance.

    PS – the prize will get a bit bigger on the launch date of The Whitenoise Challenge That Black Hat Would Not Take. Black Hat and Mr. Schneier might need a bit more motivation.
