[Discuss] Relevance of PGP?

The September BLU meeting is our annual keysigning party; the first part
of the meeting is a discussion about PGP, and then we run through the
procedure where everyone who had preregistered for the keysigning
verifies the identities of everyone else who had preregistered.

Perhaps you could discuss your idea during the Q&A?
