[Owasp-leaders] AppSec Monthly Themes

I've been toying with the idea of a centralized security theme for each month.  The idea is to flood the airwaves (or is it the pipes?) with a large amount of information on a particular application security topic.

For example, April could be "Injection Flaws" and anyone interested could blog about this topic.  I'm hoping to see articles from the perspective of builders, breakers and defenders. Also articles that dive into code examples, frameworks, lifecycle considerations, tools and more.  We can have have a push for video examples, podcasts, and project updates (if relevant to the monthly theme) and more.

This "coordinated" assault on the issue is then magnified by retweets from the OWASP twitter account and syndication on the OWASP news feed.  At the end of the month we then have an OWASP blog post that captures the definitive list to all articles, posts, tools, etc that were created during that month.  We could also award the top contributions and feature them in the newsletter. 

Anyone interested in this idea?  I'm thinking we work through a few of the OWASP top 10, then maybe jump around with a month for mobile security, cloud security, lifecylce, risk analysis, etc.

April the month of Injection Flaws?
