Submission + - Attention all CryptoNerds (regonline.co.uk)

MsAsti writes: If Bruce Schneier had been at Bletchley Park in 1939 the Nazis would have lost the second world war before it even started. Although 71 years late, if anyone can break Enigma before it was invented, Bruce Schneier can. The New Crypto League of Schenier, Diffie, Clark, and Khan will be speaking at a fundraiser for The Bletchley Park Trust and The National Museum of Computing on November 6th in the hallowed halls of Station X. Pray for a time vortex!

For sure, it's possible for engineers to invent things that customers wouldn't have imagined. But those innovations are still going to have to produce business value for the customers, or else the innovations are of no use (or nobody will pay for them, which is just as bad for the engineers).

It's still possible to say to the customer "We can make exactly what you do a little easier, for $X, or we can provide you with the following extra benefits to your business for $Y - which would you like?". Ultimately, it's the customers' decision.
