I like good ideas.

As mentioned previously here, pb implemented PGP/GPG signing into his commenting system. I thought this was a good idea. My idea, following up on that idea, was an easy way to sort of auto-discover someone’s public key. While I’ve got a pretty prominent link on my site to my public key, most people don’t. I suggested a <link rel="publickey"…> type of tag, so that given a person’s URL, you could get their key. I thought that was a good idea. Ben then followed up with Verifying PGP Signatures which talks about a web-based verification service with a trust web.

This seems to be the way to get things done nowadays… What’s next?

Oh, pb also has a nice little explanation of how to use PGP/GPG in a commenting system.
