Funny view of ridicously unsecure Web apps

My colleague Mike Rothman has a great post at SecurityIncite about Web application security and the "beta" mindset. I couldn't agree more....Just slap a beta tag on everything like Google does and you're off the hook!

Getting the IT blues because of gas this.

So many of us here in the U.S. are being affected - both personally and professionally - but these outrageous gas prices we have....I'm seeing stories about IT job losses and IT budget cuts in the name of ridiculous fuel costs. This is especially true when you have ignorant and controlling managers who won't let you telecommute. Heck, I'm cutting back on the number of networking events and lunch meetings I attend because of it...they're often not worth the money.

I figured this would be a good time to help spread the word that we CAN do something. Watch this video:

Just another public service of mine.... ;)

Happy (Energy) Independence Day!
