I just read the new and improved Dorothy Denning essay at


and I must say that I am impressed to see that our august little
group has managed to define most of the issues Dr. Denning
addresses.  She even uses the Gospel According to Tim as her
first bibliography entry.

One should realize, of course, that whether Crypto Anarchy
prevails depends not upon the varied philosophical leanings of
citizen-units May and Denning, but rather upon whether our
mathematics is more powerful than their jackbooted thugs.

Success also depends upon the implementation of widely
distributed comunications systems which are not vulnerable to
attacks launched against any particular set of nodes, and which
obfuscate which processing elements are responsible for providing
any specified instance of a service.

Crypto Anarchy running on the World Wide Crypto-Mesh.  Your
guarantee of a government-free future, Denning and friends
