Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

And so today we award the (perhaps premature) Reader of the Decade award to one Ed Ross (stand up, Ed). Ed has had the good sense to set up a webring for Register readers and welcomes you all to join here. After the initial buzz had worn off though, concern grew. Aren't webrings a little disturbing? (What do they do? What do Reg readers have in common? Are we creating a race of single-minded cynics? The possibilities are too terrifying to contemplate.) And so, we did the right thing. We emailed Ed, offering him the use of the world-renowned vulture logo and asking for feedback while simultaneously sneaking round his dustbins to find out what he's up to. Our paranoid concerns seemed at first to be confirmed - Ed is a programmer specialising in M$ software - Cripes! We've been targeted by an M$ cell working deep in Britain, laying booby traps before they're disbanded post-DoJ judgment. On the other hand, Mr Ross is a webring fanatic - he has at least nine to his name. We'll only know when Ed gets back to us. ®
