"you are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in"

Has anyone done a survey of English people to see how many believe Ireland is part of the UK?

@bob i always presumed the advantage of federation is that you could filter/select the electorate, i.e. "I will only count votes from $GROUP".... Not ideal, but maybe better?

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

[Libertarian]: "Because all the politicians are bought and paid for!"
