Lessons learned?

Dan Kaminsky said something during a discussion panel at defcon last year that still haunts me. To paraphrase:

We need to fundamentally change the way we develop software.

During the panel, I tried to raise the point that the issue is realistically just a people problem. Now it seems that I’m not the only one saying it. This article tackles the issue from an angle that argues that the issue is an age old one: we don’t learn from our history of mistakes.

Something to think about.
