Passwords Aren't Any Good... I guess.

Here's an argument for relying more on security methods other than passwords. They're hard to remember, you've gotta use 'em everywhere and their getting increasingly easier to crack. I should mention that I read this after seeing the link on Slashdot (good stuff there). You can read the case for less reliance on passwords here:

The Password Is Fayleyure

It's definitely an interesting idea. I'm inclined to think that there is a very good point there. However I'm not likely to begin using only four character passwords. I don't find them too hard to remember unless I go months without using some pass needed for an obscure site I don't use much. If you type well, even a small phrase isn't hard to use for a password.
