Zoom acquired Keybase today.
Keybase helped me to identify a trend in the software industry: using a pretty UI to cover up the disruption of an open ecosystem with a closed, centralized replacement. Keybase seemed cool on the face of it - making encryption easier is a laudible goal, and PGP certainly could use the improvement. But, thanks to Keybase, now I ask different questions upfront.
Beware the Keybase formula:
1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded
Got my #solokey today. It's pretty cool.

“Influencers are producing free content for a commercial platform that is making money off them. The platform is extracting the value of their labor”
I wish more influencers understood this and built a platform they own alongside their social profiles.
I'm considering to start using site.js and was wondering if it is possible to disable auto-updates in production mode?

@cypnk you're mixing Linux (the kernel) and Linux (the way of life) in your statement.

I'm looking for a easy and clean text snippet manager to store and easily access regular used snippets for mails, forums, etc. In a perfect world it would come with a GNOME shell extension which allows me to select a snippet with one click, copy it to the clipboard and insert it wherever I need it. Do you know anything like that?
The idea for this came out of the need to write unit tests for something axfr related.
