I'm seeing a lot of interest in OWASP from outside the so-called choir
lately. Some web frameworks (Seam
<http://seamframework.org/Documentation/WebVulnerabilitiesOverview> ,
Microsoft Team Foundation Server
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd129898(v=vs.90).aspx> , Lift
<http://seventhings.liftweb.net/security> , Mykonos
<http://www.mykonossoftware.com/framework.php> ) have started to publish
security information about their frameworks. Some of their claims are a
little, well, aggressive.  But rather than jump all over them, let's
encourage these efforts and help them actually provide the protection
they're claiming. 


I'd also like to continue you all to reach out to other communities.  Take
Richard Greenberg, for example.  He has been very active at OWASP in
California, on the GCC, and helping with the last AppSec conference.   Now
he's running for the ISSA Int'l Board of Directors where he's planning to
help them understand and push for better application security.  If any of
you are ISSA members, please support his candidacy at issa.org this June!


I encourage everyone to think of new and better ways to reach out to other
groups and figure out how to best help them with application security.
