Assignment 3 – Source Check
Check a pair of references from Bruce Schneier’s Data and Goliath. To do this do the following:
- Find a reference in the text, a place where Schneier refers to an outside source.
- Find that source and read it, summarizing it’s primary argument and whatever points are relevant to Schneier’s discussion.
- Evaluate Schneier’s discussion of the source and his interpretation of its argument
- 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.
