I have a lot of respect for Dave Sag's work - but why bring Sept 11 into the argument in such a prominent way? (even featuring it in the teaser in the onjava e-mail bulletin, from which I arrived at this article) IMHO it cheapens your presentation, and will act as a major turn-off to some who would otherwise be interested. Its a bandwagon that a lot of IT security people tried to jump onto, and many are now left with egg on their face. COS is not a snake-oil solution, but a serious technology, and the opening blurb gives entirely the wrong impression.
