Our site's top stories viewed during 2005 are mostly from previous years: It's the irony of a blog that your traffic is either on your home page or in the archives. Stories that age well tend to continue to receive high traffic.

You'll notice a trend here: Six of the top 10 stories are about security, four about Wi-Fi Protected Access. Only three stories in the top ten ran in 2005, while three date back to security issues first written about in 2003! And the 2nd most popular story was a white paper written by a security expert that we were given permission to post. Top story number 9 is quite curious in that it's just a one-paragraph pointer to a David Pogue column.
