imagine a thing like google map with pinpoints for all DD's. Now add a
circle of say 50 miles around each. Now if people in those areas could
meet a DD and join the web of trust, what percentage of people would be
able to join the web of trust to take a poll/vote? That would probably
make it easier for EU folks to get more votes than folks in the US. I
suppose that would have to be a limitation for now, before we reach
world domination and everyone is a DD x-) (Can vi and emacs be DD's?)
