Ok, I'm game.  Name is Mike Shinn.  I'll spare everyone the long life
history (if you are interested go here http://mike.shinn.net) In a former
life I was part of Cisco's Advanced Network Security Research Group,
amongst other things.

I'm a remailer operator (http://mixmaster.shinn.net) so my interests
naturally include free haven.  Interestingly enough, my colleagues and I
started tossing around a similiar idea to free haven back in September of

Well, thats enough about me.

Is this described in the papers on the free haven website?

This might seem unimportant to the process of design, (and someone else
might have already said it) but I would suggest integrating strong
anonymity into Freenet simply because of the media attention it has
recieved.  Perhaps I'm assuming too much, but I would suspect the intent is
to get as many people as possible to use free haven.
