Doug Kaye's thoughts on web services, web hosting and managed services.

IT Conversation with Dan Geer He ran development at MIT's Project Athena when Kerberos and X Windows were developed there, but Dan is more recently known as the guy who was fired for co-authoring a report proclaiming the security risks posed by the monoculture caused by Microsoft's dominance of the software industry.


Hear or read Dan's long-term assessment of our information security challenges. "As the threat increases the security perimeter skrinks." But as we shift to protecting assets at the file-object level, access control will prove unscalable. The solution, Dan says, is the introduction of accountability.

And yes, he tells the monoculture story, too.

(This is one of my favorite interviews of the past nine months.)
