Talk to Strangers

Via Les Jones: Security expert Bruce Shneier says Talking to strangers is the best security strategy for kids in distress. He’s been saying it for years.

I like this quote from the article and his book. “In a world where good guys are common and bad guys are rare, assuming a random person is a good guy is a smart security strategy.” We too often forget that there are more good guys than bad guys in the world.

In a non-related counter prevailing wisdom he also says writing down your passwords is a good idea.

UPDATE: This site has pulled me in and Bruce’s blog is now in my blogroll. Another good one is his solution to identity fraud – make it the credit card companies problem.
