>> If someone could sign my key over video conferencing, that would be very much helpful to me. Yes, I know it's much less trusted than actual person-person meetups in real world. But at the same time, it offers an easy solution for someone living in a very remote area. And it's also particularly helpful if he/she can't afford travel expenses to get keys signed. I think it's just like performance vs. security in cryptography. Signing someone's key through video conferencing is less secure but at the same time it's an effective solution for remote areas. I think key signing through video conferencing, might help in reducing 'crypto divide' (like that in 'digital divide'). :)
