@Tryphon I agree we could use a better LinkedIn. 😁
Anyone that takes inspiration from the PGP web-of-trust would do well to seriously reconsider. IMO, obviously.
The PGP web of trust was (is) a very deep, fundamental failure. That article doesn't even scratch the surface of why - quite the opposite, it's largely written from the POV that the underlying concept had merit.
I disagree, I think it's dangerous and harmful.
As a result, I'm deeply sceptical of any derived works.
