My previous post about digital signatures, a web of trust, and certificate authorities has absolutely nothing to do with the electronic signatures bill that President Clinton is going to sign today. In other words, I’m a sucker. Apparently this bill is a nasty piece of legislation that allows lots of routine acts by a customer to be treated as electronic signatures that indicate consent to be bound under a contract. That sucks. A reader sent me a link to the article that pulled the wool from my eyes.
