The contributor of this article should be ashamed of his/herself for the sensationalized, misleading title. And -
The presentation that Rasmus gave showed some very, very powerful tools for profiling & improving PHP performance. The MySQL/PostgreSQL comment was barely a footnote on a presentation of tools that deserve the positive attention that Rasmus gave them.
"The web is broken and it is all your fault" comment was completely taken out of context. I took it as a challenge to the majority of web developers out there that are ambivalent to security and practices that represent a challenge to our profession. Anybody hear this thing folks are talking about called 'identity theft'? We as web developers have a responsibility to our customers and end users to protect the data they share with us. Rasmus was presenting to improve awareness of both the technical vulnerabilities as well as tools & techniques to address the problems we face. It's a shame that those messages didn't reach the slashdot community.
Seriously, check out the tools that were the focus of Rasmus's presentation: valgrind, callgrind & kcachegrind - they are amazingly powerful.
