Someone on the list quipped that much of security these days are just 
folk stores and/or folk songs. That made my laugh a bit, so in honor of 
that comment I'd like to present...

The Ballad of Jed the Coder
(Sung to the tune of "Ballad of Jed Clampett" :  Banjo Required 

(Part 1)
Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed

A poor start up coder, barely kept his family fed,

Then one day he was reviewing some logs

He found he was hacked by his corporate blog....

Hackers that is, SQL Injection, data theft....

Well the first thing you know that hackers a millionaire,

Kinfolk said Jed quit and had to move away from there

Said Californy is no longer the place you ought to be

So they loaded up the truck and moved to a town with low technology...

Corn fields, that is. Corporate coders, less stress.

(Part 2)
Well now its time to say good-bye to Jed and all his kin.

And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.

You're all invited back next week to this locality

To have a heapin helpin of OWASP hospitality

Open source that is. Set a spell. Take your shoes off.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?


Happy Monday.
