Sometimes advice in the blogosphere is dangerous. I wonder if those demanding stronger password complexity have ever thought about the correlation between strong passwords and weak security.

You wouldn't know...
Maybe the better answer is to not name drop clients using your technology and instead provide ideas of how it could be used for those that aren't. For example, none of the names listed in this blog are Fortune Enterprises from the Insurance vertical. Maybe suggest how it could be best used to sell automobile insurance

If Java, .NET, Ruby and other languages have rules engines, how come Smalltalk doesn't? I wonder if James Robertson of Cincom is a reactive product manager and does only what his customers ask or is proactive and supplies what they need?
Nicholas Carr is usually the plaque within the house of IT but has a thoughtful posting on old fat men
