            Subject: creating a noisy library
    First Jennifer De Beer's note includes two unattributed snips from other
    messages. They are not from the same author, but the way in which they are
    included makes it seem as if they were typed by the same hands. The first,
    which I agree is tilting at windmills, is not from me. The second offering
    to share a brief overview of technologies involved etc as described in a
    forthcoming CACM article is by me.
    The draft of the contributor-run library (aka noisy in the Jacksonian
    sense) can be found at http://www.advogato.org/article/170.html and you
    and your readers may join the discussion there if you choose. Advogato
    implements a matrix of trust (taken from crypto folks) which I would
    include in a noisy library.
