It seems that you may have misunderstood mine and Martin's desire to learn
PGP... we were both just wondering about it and decided to figure it out
that night (which sort of coincided with the release of firePGP for gmail).
Most likely, theres no need for a whole group for it, since no more
attention really needs to be devoted to it unless someone else feels like
Geographical groups are always nice, but probably don't need to be
incredibly organized, ie if the gents down near Miami feel like getting
together, they can just organize a local meetup if they really want to. Once
we get bigger (we hit 50 members last night) organization on a smaller
scale, like southern, central, Northern Florida, will be a good idea.
