You rang????

Ah, personal digital bearer bonds, the bearer-settled (cheaper!)
alternative to credit cards and other consumer debt. :-). Take a look at
http://www.philodox.com for some pointers.

We're doing a symposium on digital bearer settlement 7/23-34/98, and the
registration deadline is this Thursday. If you're interested, let me know
and I'll send you a copy of the final call for participants.

Already the telecommunications standard, SONET/SDH has now been
