R'Snake just published a blog post on O2 which provides a great overview of
my Friday's IBM/O2 Blog post series:

*"...Dinis Cruz has a series of posts about the future of his work at IBM
and O2 in particular<http://diniscruz.blogspot.com/2009/11/update-3-on-o2-ibm-13-nov-09.html>.
It starts off with a fictional layout of an application assessment, and why
IBM is currently well poised to solve the problem holistically. Then it
rapidly breaks down as the posts go on. The problem is
O2<http://www.owasp.org/index.php?title=OWASP_O2_Platform>doesn’t have
a good home within IBM (or at least not yet). Being a project
of a pretty substantial size and complexity and having no support model, it
stands to reason that it may have some rough times ahead without an
executive sponsor. It also makes sense why people may be unlikely to adopt
it - without the backing of a more robust team like they would get from a
commercial code analysis product.*

*Dinis has an open call to action to the enterprises at large who need
static code analysis on the cheap, and want something more robust in the
future. I’ll be curious to see if any big companies step up to the plate
here and takes ownership. It’s a bit unclear about Dinis’ fate within IBM -
I think he’s a bit on the fence. One thing I do know, IBM would be foolish
to let Dinis walk. That’s especially true if it is (according to Dinis’ case
which he builds up in his posts) in their best interest ultimately. Who
knows, IBM might get their act together before it’s too late. Otherwise, I
bet Dinis will find a good home for himself and O2 elsewhere...."*
*Help request: *I just created a page on the OWASP Wiki to keep track of
this type of external references to O2. So if you spot one (or write one :)
) , please link it here
will show up here:
