There is an addendum to the ARS article, antdude See Profile
quote:
Bruce Schneier returned an e-mail to Ars, saying that his departure had nothing to do with the NSA—he simply wants to move on. "No, they weren't happy with me, but they knew that I am an independent thinker and they didn't try to muzzle me in any way. It's just time. I spent seven years at BT and seven years at Counterpane Internet Security, Inc before BT bought us. It's past time for something new."

Re: NSA surveillance critic Bruce Schneier to leave post at BT

Being the person Schneier is, and being the company BT apparently is (based on the NSA documents), the "fit" for him there would only have become increasingly awkward. The two would seem to be miles apart in how they look at things related to the Internet, the future, and security... I have long had nothing but respect for Schneier.
