Now that I have a place to put my quasi-technical babble over at MSDN, the space is reserved for me to spew my political bile and enjoy all things sci-fi. Heh.

Is your color printer spying on you?

This article, Schneier on Security: Secret Forensic Codes in Color Laser Printers, brings up an interesting point. Most of us have no idea how many people are spying on us all the time, or could if they wanted to.

You have to wonder what possed Xerox to put them in there in the first place. Was it a secret deal pre-dating the Patriot Act? Where are Mulder and Scully when you need 'em? Is the Internet slowly taking over the planet? Or is this just a bug in the self-diagnostic routine? Heh.

Strike something!
