i'm definitely going to be around this saturday (moving into halls and
preparing for the induction week)

i'm a coder[1] (over towards the OS end of the FOSS spectrum) and an
Apache Member[1] with an interest (if you can call it that) in legal
(and licensing) issues, community building and FOSS organisational

looks like the stuff you're planning is all aimed at end user
evangelism. which is cool. outside practical crypto, this isn't my
strength. but if it turns out you find yourselves short of someone to
pick up some of the more esoteric technical stuff (coding, legal,
licensing or organisational), then i'd probably be able to do a lot of
that off the cuff. i'll try to drop in early and leave a mobile phone

given the progress made on breaking SHA-1[3], i'm very keen to swap my
new openpgp code signing key with others in the FOSS web of trust. if
there are people interested, i'd be happy to do key signing party (if
there isn't one already) or talk people through how to set up GnuPG[4]
to generate strong keys and strong links in the WOT[4][5].

Excellent, thanks for getting in touch. I know a few people in the group with similar interests so you won't feel left out if you do decide to attend on Saturday.

Furthermore, we're looking to hold some workshops at the MDDA (Portland Street) in coming months, so how would you feel about hosting a workshop on GnuPG and key signing?These have been hot topics in the group of late.

Best regards,
