i’ve noticed a couple of tildes in the tildeverse make use of the finger protocol. going to fill out my .project and .plan files on tildetown soon.
wikipedia’s entry on Finger has a big  by the section “Security Concerns.” it says the finger protocol made social engineering easy by giving access to employee names and phone numbers. with most companies having a presence on linkedin now, isn’t this point moot? are there other security concerns to be aware of?
