<wseltzer> Tor Project

<bergi_> i have to leave

<bergi_> bye

<magnetik> Don't know if google is or will be interrested in WebID, but Chrome is the only browser with really bad javascript crypto support

<wseltzer> thanks, I'll look forward to interacting once I've gotten my feet planted better at w3c

<melvster1> wseltzer: welcome, great to have you on board :)

<wseltzer> Tor aims to help people protect themselves against traffic analysis. People might choose to identify themselves to an endpoint without sharing all that with intermediaries.

<wseltzer> thanks melvster1

thanks wseltzer
