Isn't it funny how within 24h the approach to #Keybase changed from "it's secure and awesomesauce, use it for everything!!1!" to "I just use it to share stuff but warn users not to do sensitive stuff there"?

No, actually it's not funny. Because it keeps happening:

1. a new shiny startup does X in an open source but centralized way
2. a lot of "experts" saying how great it is; some greybeards warn that it's centralized but nobody listens - it's so shiny and cool!

@rysiek while I don't know a lot about keybase, I do find myself thinking about wanting to look into building decentralized apps that are secure but also suitable for the average joe... recently had an idea for a decentralized alternative to ubereats but I'll have to look into details...
