Stuff Worth Reading

I have recently come across two computing articles that I highly recommend:

Code Craft: Freedom Languages Author Kevin Barnes discusses the differences between the "safety" programming languages (C++, Java, etc.) and the "freedom" languages (Perl, Python, etc.). His points are well organized, his argument well written, and the article highly insightful.

The Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security Recently featured on Slashdot, this article points out exactly what's wrong in computer security. Allow the following quote to provide a taste of this excellent work:

"...if the conventional wisdom was working, the rate of systems being compromised would be going down, wouldn't it?"
