Discussion needs to be of a nature that:
- Identifies first principles.
- Models the results.
But most importantly:
- Makes sure the resulting models are useful and usable.
Some things to avoid:
- Stays away from statements such as “we should all use Linux” or “this wouldn’t happen if people patched their systems.”
- Mentions of Sun Tzu are not allowed in lectures, unless they are new, previously unseen 0day quotes.
- Purely academic topics such as: “5% faster crypto!”
