PGP key-signing party at the Linux-BG conference?

[in Bulgarian]

Just an idea I've had for some time, and thought I'd finally share :)

Wouldn't it be a good idea to throw a little PGP key-signing - or at least key-exchange - party at this month's Linux-BG conference on June 18th? The adventurous souls who like to lug laptops around and are gullible enough to stick in untrusted media from others would be able to do the key-signing right on the spot. For the others, IMHO it would be nice for everyone to bring sheets of paper paper (or, as Kaloyan Doganov did some time ago, just put the info on business cards) with their name, their PGP key ID, and its fingerprint on them, and give them away.

As a side benefit, this will give yet another opportunity to match faces to names ;)
