Things move slowly here at advogato ... Am I really in cyberspace?

Someone (Dave Bauer) has kindly read my diary entry and added a certification. He has certified me as 'master', but I have a feeling that this may have ended up having no effect...

I read the trust metric stuff and now wonder if, given the nature of the traffic on the site, it might be impossible to get proper certs unless you are actually known to the individuals who happen to look at who is coming in.

Maybe if they knew I had a hand in:

The world's biggest omelette!

I was called in as they were going for the record to fix the computer that was supposed to be webcasting but had stopped. I just managed to fix it in time so they were able to broadcast the declaration that they had finished the omelette.

Since I do web stuff and they had not thought to do any type of permanent memorial, I used a company 'shelf site' we had saved for charity to put up the news. You can see it here:


I have had a pretty good career and some personal luck over the years. I feel a bit sheepish about not having given enough back, but I have given something.

Come to think of it, I wrote a program for these guys to operate a charity auction thing. I should GPL the thing and put it up at PureWish...

Still trying to think of an ethical and polite way to break into the 'trust web' here.
