Planet Web Security

If you want to keep up with the latest in web application security, you might want to add Planet Web Security to your reading list. In his announcement, Christian Matthies offers this brief description:

I am pleased to announce the launch of Planet Web Security, founded with the intention to bring together similarly themed news and rants related to web security and to display them in one place.

It's still in its infancy, so I'm sure it will only get better as more relevant blogs are added. Comparing it to my own planet (not specific to web application security), I can already identify a few blogs that should probably be added:

Congrats on getting this launched, Christian!

Yeah, the new planet is cool, and heres my vote that the blogs you list should be added as well (and no, not because mine is listed).

Thank you Chris for promoting the planet!

I would love to add those sites but I won't do it without the owners explicit permission.

So guys, I would appreciate if you contacted me ;)

Long time reader, first time poster. I just wanted to say, damn you Chris :-) Your articles, while of increasing infrequency and brevity, always bring to the table many more resources, so I'm always consumed reading more sites that you recommend.

They are all usually ace, though, as are most of your posts -- except for that one about URLs... forcing me to go without the www. on your site is evil >_<

Thanks for the kind words, Jonathan.

I'll try to post with more frequency and less brevity, but I also want to respect my readers' time and only post something when I feel like it's worth reading. Lately, I just haven't had a lot to say.

Sorry about the no-www stance, but I feel like the www subdomain is as unelegant as email addresses like chris@mail.example.org, where chris@example.org is my personal preference.
