I think that when such a number of people come together it would be nice to
have a key-signing in Berlin. If you have no idea, what a key-signing is, look
at the wikipedia-article [[en:Key_signing_party]].
If you don't own a pgp-key yet and are an linux-user there are several how-tos
on the net to get one fast (there are how-tos for windows-users too, but it's
more complex, but that doesn't need to stop you).
Because there is no time (and place) for a hash-methode-keysigning (you know,
all standing in a line for hours ;)), I would organise a
list-methode-keysigning. That means that you send me
*Your nick (if you have one)
*Your realname (optional, but some people don't sign non-realname-keys)
*Your key (if it is not on normal key-servers)
I will make a list of that data. Then I (respectively the verein) will print
out several copies of that list and place them at central places (like the
reception or the c-base) for hand-out. You can also place sticker on your
nameplate (to let people easier find you) if you like (I have colorful
sticker-dots here ;)).
You will take such an list and start looking for other people, that stand on
the list, check your hash on his/her list and his/her hash on your list and
mark your name as checked on his/her list and his/her name on your list if
all is right. Then continue until all entries on your list are checked (or
the meeting is over).
It would be very nice if many people would participate to increase the level
of trust (at least the key-trust) between us.
Follow up to foundation-list.
P.S: Even if you come just to the party on saturday, you can take part!
2.P.S: I organize a key-signing for the first time, so please be patient if I
did anything wrong.

There's another way to do a key-signing, faster than 1-to-1. You have
everyone have a list and each one presents itself, giving their fingerprint.
I guess you'll have a brief introduction at the beginning where everyone
presents himself? If you were to say "I'm Daniel (aka as DaB), the evil
toolserver dictator", you'd also add " and my fingerprint is 3F70 85CA
F69E 03B5 063B 3B38 2D3E E2D4 2B25 5885"
Depending on their key-signing policy may request you later some kind of
id, but at least they have seen someone with that key claiming to be
you, and can remember your face to ask you instead of wandering about.
