Today, I Publicly Praised Microsoft

On the “Meet the Bloggers” panel at the Detroit IT Security Summit, I publicly heaped praise on Microsoft for their investment in security, the results of which include some really cool tools in Visual Studio 2005.

Also on the panel, Ed Vielmetti brought up a really good point that I hadn’t heard recently, that of FAA after-incident reports, and how they contrast to the head-in-the-sand approach the computer industry takes. I think such after-incident reports are needed to help temper any liability system that might get built.
