    I've e-mailed and called for more technical details, after seeing the
    article in print when my Signal arrived last week.  They've promised a
    copy of the white paper mentioned in the article, but they are
    "treating the technology as if it is covered by the USML, as published
    as part of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)." (I
    didn't make that up, it's a quote.)
    George Smith, Editor of Crypt Newsletter has some very interesting
    observations, see:
    One observation on an underground list was to the effect, if jargon
    could win a war the "BS" would dominate the world. (BS = Blitzkrieg
    Server, but free substitution is taking place among them) Another
    observation on IRC is, with OpenGL graphics accelerator, it's 95%
    gooey 5% something else.
    The Signal article has pegged the skepticism meter on everyone with a
    clue and they've got to overcome that, fast, with some details before
    they're marginalized.
