For now, we'd  like to get more people to sign each others' keys at Noisebridge. In the future, it may be useful to build tools to visualize islands and the noisebridge "strong set", the largest set of noisebridge people who mutually trust each other. Once that set of people is clear, you can join it by finding three or more people who belong to it who are willing to sign your key, and we can strategically bridge islands to join the largest group of people together.
