Identity and Passwords

Interesting piece on passwords in this week's Newsweek.  The latest and greatest is not biometrics, but a one-time password you receive on your cell phone.  If that gets going, I'll really have to get into the modern world (I make very limited use of a cell). But our true security lies in the herd instinct--the predators get the weak and the unlucky while the rest of us run off thinking ourselves immortal just because we escaped.
