This week on the performance front:

Indications that Twitter is using SPDY.  With one of the Internet’s most popular sites on board, who will be next to switch over to the faster protocol?

In the world of information security:

We saw the introduction the Cybersecurity Bill “SECURE IT Act” (Strengthening and Enhancing Cybersecurity by Using Research, Education, Information, and Technology Act) to the Senate, which doesn’t suggest any additional regulations for info security and would distance the government from protecting the private sector.  Others suggest the Department of Homeland Security should be involved.  What do you think the governments role in information security should be?

David Spark writes, “The bad guys are really good at sharing information to break into us. We’re really not that good at sharing information to prevent them from breaking into us.”  Should we be sharing incident data?

Finally, this week showed us a some browser vulnerabilities in  Google Chrome and IE9.  Google offered up cash rewards and credit for finding their bugs.  Microsoft? Not so much.
