Since I'm more-or-less technically a "vendor" for the IETF, I try to stay
out of the way as much as possible.

But I have a deep passion for encryption, and especially email encryption.

So perhaps in my role as "keeper of the encrypted@ietf.org PGP key", I will
be permitted to sneak past my vendor status this one time, and participate
in your key signing party in Prague?  I would love to attend.
