Novella: Knights of the Rainbow Table

Knights of the Rainbow TableWhen you ask someone like Cory Doctorow about the future of computing and security you really can’t know what’s going to happen. His story The Knights of the Rainbow Table not only provides a fascinating picture of a possible future but it also reveals unexpected insights and surprising turns. What surprised me the most was how human the story became. In the beginning it is grand story about what could happen but in the end it became about the personal effect that a world without passwords could have on a person’s wellbeing.
