Does the world need another security portal?

I recently snagged a cool domain name, stormthe.net.  I wanted to do something computer security related with it, but didn't know exactly what.

Last week, however, I found myself trying to scour up web sites that i hadn't visited for a while, from bookmarks across several computers, and having to search for some completely from scratch.

So, I was thinking about a portal of links, sorted by categories, such as Tools, Advisories, Blogs, Exploit Code, News, etc...

User submitted content, ranked links, etc...

Wondering if people would be interested in such a thing before I started writing code.  Please, let me know your thoughts.  Thanks!

Rance,

nice domain 8)

Wish I'd thought of that, as it happens I'm currently in a similar state; just got infosanity.co.uk (watch this space). Not sure I want to go down the portal route, just looking for somewhere to host my own stuff. Actually working on my servers as I type ;)

Let me know when you get something put together and I'll take a look.

To answer your question, I'm not sure the world needs another security portal, but I always like finding good security sites (like this one.....)

<update> nice hedgehog btw ;) </update>

Hey Rance,

The world doesn't necessarily need another security site, but if anyone does something better than the next guy... more power to them.

If either of you do decide to put up security sites, let me know. I'll be sure to put them on our Links Page. Others helped me when I had the crazy idea for this site, and I am always willing to do the same. Pay it forward, baby!

If it's an outlet you need for writing articles, I can give you a platform. PM me with any ideas you might have for EH-Net, be it articles or anything else. I usually have a few extra prizes in my back pocket, so I can at least find some way to compensate you if it ends up being a great addition to EH-Net.

Food for thought,

Hey Don,

Is there a way Information Security Day (htttp://www.informationsecurityday.com) can get into the Links Page?

Thanks in advance.
