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

Aaaand we’re back up and running. The migration is complete, but please let us know if you guys have any issues.

REMINDER!!!

IMPORANT ANNOUNCEMENT:

At approximately 13:00 BST (08:00 Eastern) tomorrow, Tuesday 16th, we will be doing a database migration that will result in around 30 minutes of downtime.

Published a guide for the Hanabi competition (and found a bug in j2static in the process 😞) - hopefully it makes sense :P.

Migration is all done - waiting on DNS to fully propagate so if you still can't access the website wait a while and it should be back :).

Comet is temporarily off-line while is is moved to a new server. Sorry for any inconvenience caused :).

It looks like lots of this years fossdem videos are already online: video.fosdem.org/2019/
