Joy may be an overreaction.

I just wrote (in part) to [email protected]:

Perhaps the law will be passed, then struck down by courts as unconstitutional
(after campaigners have incurred some expense) and something else will

On another subject: Micali's patents are described in AC2.
(Page 97 is missing from the indexed list of Micali-mentioning pages,)

On page 98 Schneier says of the advantages of key escrow:
  "Well, there really aren't any".
