I think keysigning will be good at the hack night on saturday, and
probably in the common area of mit, perhaps at any librebooting area.
Also, I encourage anyone interested in key signing to add their
name here,
and add a note (attending libreplanet 2018) as I've done. Or feel
free to suggest something else.
