-So, the US Government wants to classify Sean Gorman's student project.
-The question is did Mr. Gorman's maps divulge the vulnerability in the
-East Coast power grid that resulted in the blackouts this week?

-Would it be better to know about these vulnerabilities, and do something
-about them; or is it better to keep them secret until they fail in a
-catastrophic way?

This is a question whose answer I am willing to bet will 
remain classified should his research be classified.
