Cool Code Search

Here is a very cool idea: Google has a new service that searches for bits of public domain code. Need a little widget and don't have the time or skill to build it? Just download and go! I have a couple of questions: Is this code tested for bugs, security holes or malware? And can malware itself find its way into the system?

By the way, we're launching Redmond Developer News, a new magazine for corporate software development managers. Get your subscription here. And if you're a developer or development manager, what would you like to see in such a magazine? Let me know at [email protected].
