Last month the Wall Street Journal reported that J.C. Penney is bringing back printed catalogs after a five year absence. It was nice to see that they actually did a little research to find out motivated buyers, regardless of where they actually made their transaction.

The Heartbleed bug has revealed how little most people know about the underpinnings of the World Wide Web. I have seen several articles where the reporter is astonished at how few people are involved in creating something like the OpenSSL software that is the center of the Heartbleed story.

Two, if you use an installation of Wordpress (or just about any other blogging or content management system) you have locks that are getting broken every day.
