      Watching US v Germany with some guys from work...

        @ki6bjv Very interesting.

          @33mhz I started to read that earlier, but got sidetracked. I don't know why it has to be either/or. Why can't we all just get along?

            @longstride I knew there was a reason I liked you.

              @33mhz Encrypt/sign as much as possible, I think. I'm setting up my email client to sign all outbound email (just from the desktop for now) with my public key. Uploaded it to a public keyserver so it can be verified.

                My public key fingerprint is 971D6E55, and I've uploaded it to the GnuPG keyserver. Looks like just a couple of the folks I found on Keybase have done the same, and I've signed those keys so feel special. Or something.

                  Can they *not* do that, I guess? (probably a dumb question)
                  jnm
                    Hm. It'd be mighty sociable of the keybase gang to go ahead and upload keys to a public keyserver.

                      @gtwilson Keybase.io: Essentially a fancy web front-end for a keysigning party, I think. It's supposed to encourage wider adoption of gpg/pgp. Maybe? (I'm still trying to figure it out.)

                        @smc Are you assuming they'll make it a subscription-only thing?

                          I've followed a handful of you turkeys on Keybase. If you're following me here and have an account there, let me know.

                            @nitinkhanna There may be no use case, but it can't hurt to look at it.

                              @echodunk Because we all cynically equate buzz to fluff. There's only one way to find out if it's useful to me, though, and that's to try it.
