some place!

the internet needs security and privacy/anonymity neither of which will be provided reliably by the corporate world or any government.

I like keybase...

so, keybase is pretty cool; its main weakness is the security of the sites used to confirm the identity of each user... the idea that all of the sites wont get hacked successfully is not really a universal solution. broadening the user base must eventually include people who do not maintain good passwords. while this does not necessarily effect the users who are more pedantic about their passwords; it does weaken the overal value of the keybase system. the general need for good security for users is amoung the most difficult issues to solve in the internet age...

another issue is privacy...

interesting new feature:

.keybase.ignore...

a file which can be inserted into any directory causing keybase to ignore any file which matches patterns in the file...

other tools

in the physical world privacy and anonymity are two very different things. on the internet they are nearly identical.
