I would definitely like to see this. It would be good to get an
overview of the theory of PKI for those that don't know it (or those,
like me, who know something about it but probably have more than a few
misconceptions), the differences between PGP and GPG (as I'm aware
that you use PGP for interoperability reasons), as well as a good
tutorial on how to properly create a key, get it signed, manage a
keyring, and make use of it (something that I found confusing the
first few times).
Perhaps two keysigning parties would be in order: one the night of the
presentation for those that already have a key, and one the following
meeting for those that have since seen the light?
