The Underestimated Steve Lipner
Anyone who follows Microsoft exploits has followed Steve Lipner, too.  I've been following his blog at MS and watching Microsoft's SDL evaolve and improve over the years.  Honestly, I feel Steve is one of those guys that, especially in recent years, is looked at as part of the old generation of techies; a graybeard.  But I wouldn't discount Steve, especially as someone who follows his career and work.  This is a great opportunity for SAFECode since today's InfoSec world seems to be a division between young hacker flashiness and serious BI types.  Like many of the suited graybeards, Steve has spent years focused on repeatable process, putting SDL through iterations of process improvement and all the while writing about this experience for others to learn from.  Guilty of the flashiness myself, as I get older and come close to graybeard status, I appreciate more and more people like Steve and their innovations in InfoSec process improvement.  Definitely a management move to watch and a company to keep and eye on for big changes coming down the road.
