Assorted robot affirmations 

Really at some point I think people are going to have to pry the clonking, dead fist of Steve Jobs from the throat of our collective intuitions about security and simply accept that the 'completely naive' user should not be a target.

People spend enough time with and using computing resources that they develop models of how they work, a sort of 'folk technology' shaped by the UI, so they're going to 'learn' something anyway, it should actually reflect the realities of the system more.

Instead of trying various UI hacks to see what might prompt a naive user to do the right thing, it's probably better to work toward giving users a more accurate mental model. No, this doesn't mean 'hour of code' or everyone being a programmer.

(Though erasing the programmer/user distinction would be nice.)

Having people get basic security concepts in mind, what the threats are, what guards against them, how they work, what the mitigations CAN do and what they CAN'T. Given that social engineering is and always will be a /thing/, I don't think there's really any way this can be avoided.

I am the sort of terrible person who would write a rap to teach the kids these days about mathematical proofs and call myself Notorious Q.E.D.

And I would only feel a *small* amount of shame!

One of the serious problems with viewing things like copyright as intellectual property rather than a specially granted, limited monopoly is that it prejudices all discussions.

If a phone manufacturer locks down all phones to keep people from installing whatever software they want or institutes noncompete requirements in their app stores or whatever other garbage, a lot of people are going to implicitly be on the phone's side and require a VERY STRONG rationale to 'arbitrarily deprive the company of its property rights'.

Such rationales exist, but the huge presumption based on the already problematic Awe and Reverence for the Word Property really screws up our legal and policy framework.

On the other hand if we made it clear to everyone that we're granting a monopoly to achieve specific social purposes and with specific requirements, then any use of the monopoly would be tried against those enumerated social goods.
