Hi All,

I spent the day in a conference at Yale on security and privacy for 
journalists and their sources.With the news of Syria's blackout, it 
seemed particularly timely.  One of the speakers said that she thought 
that children should be taught how to model threats from the third grade 
on.  It struck me that modeling threats must precede representing risk 
because risk assessment has to be made with reference to what the risk 
is or is thought to be and that, in turn, hangs on threats.  So I pass 
this along with the hope that someone will come up with a good way to do 
this -- and share it here.
