M. Drew Streib for Social Engineer of the Year!

Effective ways to move up in the rankings:

1. Make contact with one of the isolated tribes of GPG users who are
not part of the strong set.  All those people will then be connected,
but far away from everyone except you, bwah ha ha.

2. Teach a class on GPG and get all your students to sign your key.

3. Run a keysigning

Hey, wait a minute -- the ways to get more Drew juice are also
the ways to expand the usefulness of the web of trust and get more
people started using crypto.  Way to use elitism for good.

(I've already written a puff piece on Drew for LJ.)

Subject: [keyanalyze-announce] August 2001 report available
To: keyanalyze-announce@dtype.org

I'm happy to announce the availability of the August keyanalyze report.

This month, the keyring was grown somewhat by an import from pgp.com,
which brought the analyzed ring to over 1.85 billionbytes (I don't
feel like doing the binary math for gigabytes conversion).

Also, individual key reports include hop histograms, showing the number
of people at each distance from your key. This is a more detailed breakdown
of the numbers that lead to the "mean shortest distance" final measurement.

Thanks to all those that have contributed code and ideas.
