Professor Michael Wesch, a techno-savvy anthropologist (the best kind!), makes a phenomenal presentation (I borrowed his title for this post) on:
  1. the implications of what seem like small web security issues

  2. on the dramatically changing landscape of ideas, creativity, and, ultimately, people

  3. ...and makes some superb points on how we will need to be rethinking our cultural core and laws RSN

Read the text, then watch the vid. Gets my nod for best understanding of both security and people. Let alone the tech that makes the "Web" go - both today and historically - which he also obviously "gets."

I really mean it - he's someone who "gets it" on several fronts, even his critique of where a lot of IT security practitioners' headspace is (not all; but only the best recognize end users - and their personal lives - as a high risk area both for the user and for companies). He recognizes the porous nature of the net, despite firewalls, border content scrubbers, and other scrubber schmubbers, when you've got giant RSS imports reprocessing the data written by programmers no better than most, and never subject to code review, because it's not 'on the border.' And he makes a fun presentation out of it.
