Assignment 3 – Source Check
Check a pair of references from Bruce Schneier’s Data and Goliath. To do this do the following:

  1. Find a reference in the text, a place where Schneier refers to an outside source.
  2. Find that source and read it, summarizing it’s primary argument and whatever points are relevant to Schneier’s discussion.
  3. Evaluate Schneier’s discussion of the source and his interpretation of its argument
  4. Repeat this for an additional source.

5 pages double spaced

Note that if you choose a short source then you will have less to summarize and the evaluation will be less interesting. You want to find a more involved source as it will have more opportunities for you to evaluate Schneier’s evaluation.
