I chose to announce my theory that the Cyberspace Frontier is Closed as part of an alumni program at the Information Security Group, Royal Holloway University of London. In the Q&A that followed, I found myself in a strong exchange of views with fellow part-time staff member, Professor Whitfield Diffie (famed cryptographer and crypto policy expert). Whit was not an immediate believer. After nearly two years I hope that I am wearing him down.
I was happy to find a (moderately blury) picture of that show-down discussion, taken by Bhavin Desai on 23 July 2008 and posted by him to Picasa Web.
So how about it, Whit? Do you believe me yet?
