Congratulations to the winners and thanks to Jeremy for answering participants' questions this week!

Just an observation: the minimal participation we got in this book promo seems to support my assertion that not very many developers are interested in security. Those who do consider it have more questions than answers. I hope the book does well and I hope the winners can put what they learn from it to good use in promoting and developing a better awareness of good security practices.

Have a great weekend!

While I agree with this statement:

, I do not think it follows from this:
the minimal participation we got in this book promo

Looking at the brief description on Amazon, it seems the book is targeted more towards IT managers and system administrators rather than developers. Although there is general content that might benefit anyone interested in security, it looks to be short on approaches relevant to developers (the chief audience of this site). I would also argue that this site's audience does not represent the developer audience at large in ways that might suppress interest in security issues.  But I agree with your main, lamentable, observation that too few developers take an active interest in security.

We have two more security promos coming up, so we shall see!

I don't think people having more questions than answers is a bad thing though. It means there is ripe opportunity to learn.

Also, two people already replied claiming their prize. So there is interest in the book.

Leave it to a good developer to point out a fallacy in logic...   You got me!
