SANS - Survey on application security programs

So what does it take to be a good citizen? The government thinks it knows the answer -- and it's revealing all on a sponsored website aimed for children. Launched by David Blunkett, timeforcitizenship.com deliver a "citizenship curriculum" to offer children the chance to stimulate discussion and take action to become involved in the community. The "timefor" bit of "timeforcitizenship.com" refers to Time, the British system builder/retailer, which is sponsoring the site, along with Intel. Children can post artwork and celebrity pages on the site while teachers can download lesson plans for pupils to discuss. Schools and police liaison officers are expected to contribute to the site which will be awarded prizes by Time. Tony Blair said in a statement: "This website as an important role, bringing together different parts of the community to encourage more active communities and spread best practice in promoting citizenship in schools." But will an online community create a better UK citizen? Bertie Aherne, Ireland's PM, said: "I particularly welcome the use of the power of the Internet and of young people's interest in the web to stimulate debate about citizenship and the part we can all play in key issues." ®
