[cap-talk] Security and languages talk

I'm directing much of my recently-gained spare time towards a few
things I've wanted to work on for a while, but haven't had the time in
the course of my breakneck two years with OLPC. One such thing is,
after giving a bunch of high-profile talks about systems security,
writing a short one about security and programming languages.
The Boston Lisp folks invited me to give the talk on May 27th, so
the audience is a fairly clueful programming crowd without any
necessary prior exposure to language security and capability ideas.
I'll be talking for 25 minutes: covering the basic ideas and looking
briefly at things like E, Joe-E, Caja and CaPerl.
Questions for this crowd:
* Have you seen any _great_ short introductory capability and
language security talks before? What made them great?
* What do you think are things that I absolutely must cover?
* If this was your first brush with the relevant topics, what could
I say that would really pique your interest?
