Write Down Your Passwords

News.com reports that Microsoft security expert Jesper Johansson thinks people should write down passwords. He says he himself has 68 passwords and would forget them all if he didn't write them all.
"How many have (a) password policy that says under penalty of death you shall not write down your password?" asked Johansson, to which the majority of attendees raised their hands in agreement. "I claim that is absolutely wrong. I claim that password policy should say you should write down your password. I have 68 different passwords. If I am not allowed to write any of them down, guess what I am going to do? I am going to use the same password on every one of them."
