Joe Arnold provides insights into how software development should work in large enterprises. I suspect that he is indicating that it is less about process and more about values which are missing in action in most shops where IT executives don't distiguish between management and leadership.

Anil Saldhana comments on PKI and falls for the hype of PKI equals expensive software vendors. Maybe the focus should shift away from products and towards problems which will cause a different type of conversation to occur. Anyway, I wonder what his thoughts are on identity based encryption?
I wonder if Apoorv Durga would be willing to step up and start a discussion on which security standards he would like to see Documentum, Alfresco and Stellent embrace?
