1. GPG key-signing parties (again...)

All right, first of all let me apologize if I wasn't clear enough on my
first post.

As I said, I'm doing a "research project" on the sociological aspects of GPG
key-signing parties. I do know theoretically how those work, but I'm more
interested in hearing about the impressions of people who have attended one
of those. Actually going to one in person would undoubtedly be the best way
to go about this, but since I have less than a week to do the research in
(due to some slipshod scheduling), I'm trying to find people who'll share
their experience with me.

I'm more specifically interested in :
* theory vs. reality : are these parties as formal as they're described in
HowTo's ?
* discussion topics in these parties
* the identity of the people attending them (I thought they would mostly be
fairly knowlegeable, but I've been told most of the discussions are about
basic security topics)

Thanks in advance to anyone who can enlighten me on those subjects.
