In the last couple of weeks I have been working on a few updates of both C4I.org and InfoSec News for a new site rollout in the near future, I have also been pouring over webstats, looking at search terms, and trying a few of them out. One site that suprised me was an article I never saw until today in ITworld.com by Brian Hatch "Where to Go for Security Summaries" http://www.itworld.com/nl/lnx_sec/03262002/ Where there was a neat review for InfoSec News! InfoSec News ISN (http://www.c4i.org/isn.html) shoots copies of interesting security- related articles directly to your email. The articles are very wide ranging; they're usually not related to specific vulnerabilities, but they do offer some enjoyable security reading. Volume ranges from one to ten messages a day. Yeah, it's not a weekly security reminder, but it's fun. That review made my day! Which leads to the main reason why I'm sending this mail out, Whenever someone leaves the list, I always manually type out a message to the effect of... -=- Hello, I see that you signed off the ISN list, and I was curious why? Thanks! William Knowles wkat_private -=- Nine out of ten times of sending this I get little nuggets of feedback to improve the list, one has been popping up alot is in regards to the amount of messages being sent out, and of those repling back on InfoSec News articles. Some would like to see a seperate list for replies, I think its a good idea, as it would cut down on the amount of ISN mail sent, but I was curious how many of you, the ISN readers would be interested in an unmoderated list of replies to InfoSec News articles? Unmoderated only as far as things stay on topic, if things gravitated towards food recipes involving heat generated from your servers, ballistic comparisons between the H&K MP-5 PDW and the FN P90 PDW, or the most efficient way to send a box of Krispy Kreme dougnuts overseas while still keeping them fresh, then I'd probably have to jump in, and moderate the list. :) I have no idea what the traffic would be like on this seperate list, sometimes there is one or two messages in my box about a story, and othertimes there's been 10+ messages. So, there it is, think about it, sleep on it, reply with a little feedback and we'll go with it from there. Thanks for your time!
