Hey Tim,

This sounds great! When I give presentations I usually use those images and
the EFF's Internet/HTTPS/Tor page[0]. If you are specifically talking about
browser fingerprinting, you might want to demonstrate panopticlick[1]
(although I've previouslly seen some weird results from this). Single Onion
Services are obviously new territory, so this may be a good opportunity for
creating some nice images that others can reuse.

Speaking of others, you may want to mention this on the Tor Teachers list[2].
It's still a bit new, but it's a good place for discussing this. There are
some other resources on the wiki[3], too.

I think that's all I have right now.
