For some reason I feel compelled to drop a note here - maybe in the spirit of trying to post more often - that I've left Keybase. There's no single big reason, but here's the breakdown:

  • Most of all, I hardly use it for anything other than moving the odd small file between devices.
  • Next, I was trying to figure out how to change out my GPG key since I've had to regenerate.
  • Then I recalled how they had been bought. This is a complex topic, and while I can understand the "need to pay the bills" I don't want my crypto provider being under the fiscal thumb of, well, anyone.

Nothing shocking, nothing revelatory. But if you've come here and you're wondering - or because you're wondering - what's up with that, well, that's it right there.
