The city center of Düsseldorf is getting much more louder again. Seems like things are slowly going back to _normal_. Lots of construction noises and emergency vehicles, with the occasional car horn beeping and helicopters flying over.

Love it how I can open Secure Scuttlebutt 's Oasis in Beakerbrowser as a web site and combine two peer-to-peer technologies together.

Wishing all browsers came with an "Edit Source" context-menu option, like @beakerbrowser has.

Call me old-school, but I still enjoy chatting on IRC the most. The other chat tools are just too convoluted. You can find me on https://freenode.net/ with the nick jbove most often.

It's about time the KITAS re-open in NRW, Germany. Hopefully my son can go back on June 8th.

Since Microsoft adopted the chrome engine for Edge, my three main browsers are now: Firefox, Edge and Beakerbrowser. In other words: _Adios Google_

Joined the @BeakerBrowser profile with my own: <hyper://86fcdeb5ebb4a720f4e5b66fbab67a8051ddf09659cd2622cdeb0de8c4d41267/>

You will need Beakerbrowser to open that link.

First reaction to Zoom buying Keybase

1 min read

At first, the Keybase acquisition by Zoom comes as a shock to me and I actually immediately thought of deleting my account. But I have invested quite some time and effort in the account and the platform. I use it as my main encryption and signing tool and I've got a decent network and some Stellar Lumens in my account which I'm not sure where to transfer to at the moment. I get it how the people behind , who are actually really cool, want to finish their "incredible journey" with some honestly hard-earned money; and on top of all the current features Keybase offers, video chat makes a lot of sense if they want to compete with MS Teams and Slack. But the whole thing still feels like a sell-out and it is totally unclear what will happen to the current user base. Is Zoom going to charge us for our accounts now? It would have been cooler if Keybase has aquired Zoom instead. Worried about the future of Keybase, so I will be looking for an alternative tool in the next days. Not going to delete my account, just yet.
