Hello Leaders,

I just got off the phone with Mike Smith  from Akamai, and Akamai has
offered to "Akamize" all of OWASP.org for a full year for free. This is
normally about 60k/year.

Starting next year, Akamai offered to trade a corporate membership for the
years service. (They just became corporate members for this year, thanks

This is a VERY big deal. There are no crazy strings attached. This will
dramatically improve the response time and scalability capabilities of
OWASP.org while dramatically reducing our bandwidth utilization.

We should go for it in my opinion.


PS: I am from Hawaii but I have no professional affiliation with Akamai in
any way. I just had Andy on the podcast, that's it.
