I'm feeling a bit more clarity on suggesting technical resource hires for 2016. Paul, these are just ideas to trigger strategic planning discussions and ideas. I agree that the final decisions around these hires is "all you".  I hope this email is taken in the spirt of "ideas to consider".

1) Wiki experts (previously discussed)
2) Web design expert (previously discussed)
3) Technical contractor or bounties to help augment the security of common software frameworks (big potential here)
4) Security assurance contractors or bounties to help review OWASP defensive projects

The whole "developers, come to us" is only modestly effective. "Developers, we want to help and go to you" is a much more effective movement, IMO.

Thinking a bit out of box here... If we spent significant funds in helping improve common software frameworks for security - we could really have a massive impact on the world at large. I'd love to see serious investment in this area....
