Some return for your U.S. taxpayer dollars:

CrossTalk, The Journal of Defense Software Engineering is an approved Department of Defense journal. CrossTalk’s mission is to encourage the engineering development of software in order to improve the reliability, sustainability, and responsiveness of our warfighting capability and to inform and educate readers on up-to-date policy decisions and new software engineering technologies.

Whatever you may think about “warfighting”, CrossTalk sometimes has some really good articles, and even some great ones. Here are two, from the December 2007 issue:

Very good, about software maintenance:

Geriatric Issues of Aging Software

Great, about moving beyond “escaped defects” to defect prevention: 

Advancing Defect Containment to Quantitative Defect Management

Both are thorough and comprehensive—worth reading!
