Has Bruce Schneier ever commented on Bitcoin?  I searched his website but didn't find anything.

I've never found any comments about it from Bruce.  That's why he's my #1 candidate for being the real Satoshi Nakamoto  Wink

There was some discussion on the cryptography mailing list two years ago (much of it poor quality unfortunately IMO):

http://www.mail-archive.com/cryptography@metzdowd.com/msg09959.html

The thread links are screwed up after the first two messages; skip to:

http://www.mail-archive.com/cryptography@metzdowd.com/msg09966.html

and from there you can follow the Thread right-arrow at the top left.

There was another flurry of messages when the client was released:

I clicked through the thread but didn't see any from Schneier.  It would be nice if he would mention it in his monthly newsletter. I'm kind of shocked he hasn't already.

I wonder what a bad article from Schneier would do to the exchange rate...

Why would you assume it would be a "bad" article?  I read his Applied Cryptography book back in the 90's. It's one of the reasons I got interested in cryptography.

It would probably suffer in the short term, but after fixing his concerns, Bitcoin would be stronger and long-term exchange rates would probably be healthier.  At this early stage of the project, I think attacks and criticism are just what we need.

Thanks Hal for posting those links.  They helped answer some questions I had concerning the origins of blocks.  I'm still uncertain where the data for the coins themselves (non-transactional hashes) come from however.  I'll keep reading.
