If you can think of a better name that isn't taken, grab it fast. They're
Also, I wasn't thinking of this site as a discussion site. We've already
got more lists for discussing capabilities than we actively use. I was
thinking of it as simply a link-hub, a replacement for our soon-to-be-gone
WebRing hub, with links to sites about capabilities and capability-based
systems. Ie, a live survey or bibliography, as Joerg's page already is. If
we say "capability security", I don't think we'd thereby leave something out
we'd have wanted to include.
Btw, one big advantage of this approach over the WebRing one: we can include
sites that don't "join" us. Like EROS, despite Jonathan's dislike of
WebRings, and E-Speak2.2, despite HP politics.
