Well, at least not for this workshop offering.  ;>)
I am influenced by...
* the fact that the Debian committers still use GPG as a way of assuring their 
identities (and perhaps for privacy) as they go about evolving Debian

* the continued adoption and use of PGP by the numerous governments of the 
U.S. for purposes of privacy and identity assurance

* the notion that key authenticity can be established by an individual, a 
monolithic authority such as a company or a government, or a community of 
individuals attesting to each others authenticity by signing keys in the 
proverbial "web of trust". 

Seems to me this technology is still useful and will around for a while.
