|Writer's Block: I'm The Boss

If you had the resources to start your own business, what would it be?
I think my own company would be to start my own computer security company. You know, do a mix of open-source security advisories on the downtime to build up public trust and to contribute to the community at large and also working on private customer's programs and ensuring, through a number of different methods, that their programs were more secure than when they came to us.
I'd want to use whatever methods we could - including formal proofs, static analysis, and runtime debugging, to show that a program would fail in ways that would compromise a system under certain conditions.
I know it's a tough business, but I can dream.
