The problem is, by third parties paying him, it sets a precedent for rewarding Facebook's bad behavior.

Nah. Now everybody knows that instead of getting $500 from Facebook telling them about their bugs, they can get $12k from the community by just hacking them directly.

Good list indeed, but probably not for another four/five years or so. Three is very young for all that. Every kid is different, but my four year old is definitely not ready for that. My six year old, however, is starting to show interest. Early stuff like the first tintin's were written for a different world and could be better suited for an age when you can explain a thing or two in some context to your child.
