I. FRONT AND CENTER
---------------------
1.Starting up with Aspect-Oriented Programming
By Rohit Sethi
Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) is a paradigm that is quickly gaining traction in the development world. At least partially spurred by the popularity of the Java Spring framework [1], people are beginning to understand the substantial benefits that AOP brings to development.

2.Of Hackers and Egos
By Don Parker
The world of computer security can often be a strange and compelling one. Many outsiders, or those with little knowledge of computers, just don't understand the whole uproar over various issues, such as whether Microsoft Vista is more secure then Linux or Mac. It's all moot as far as the general population is concerned. But, for those of use who work in the industry, it is just more grist for the mill.
