Some topics in the security field are important enough to always be visited, even if a solution or consensus is not met. Such topics can lead to formulating entire paradigms on how we approach our daily security decisions personally and professionally. In fact, these discussions are important to me whether I agree with them or they run fully counter to my own views and I certainly do love bookmarking excellent essays.

Kurt Wismer has recently posted a couple such topics that I think are especially important to keep in mind. First, Kurt talks about why vulnerabilities are just never going to go away, and what that means to our approaches. Second, he probes the question on what average users need to know about their computer security.
