And then there was one :)
The whole idea of a "number station" is just too deliciously creepy, but this idea
of an "Internet Number Station" seems like a silly gimmick. I mean, it's nothing
like a numbers station at all, just a ploy for an encryption contest with a few links
to some conspiracy sites.
But, since we're on the subject, and this is loosely related to all the Gnutella and
FreeNet talk, how far until we have real Internet Number Stations? Of course,
done right folks won't know they're there at all. For all we know they're there
now, but if so they're run by the wrong people. How soon 'till we need (and have)
encrypted transmissions running on top of normal seeming HTTP and SMTP
