I love the instructions, particularly step one: 1. Buy an Apple computer. 2. Download and open Keybase.dmg.

Oh wow, look at that. Wasn't expecting to be on PH today! Happy to answer questions here. (I wrote that blog post.) For most users, Keybase chat shouldn't require an invite code at all (https://keybase.io/download), although if it asks for one, you can use `friend-of-keybase`. :-)

@malgorithms End2End encryption, I am surprised to learn others don't have that. (maybe shocked) Next platforms?

@jollymonatx others do have e2e encrypted messaging. The 2 things that make Keybase different, primarily, are: (1) that you can address people by the way you know them online, as opposed to by a phone number or email (or proprietary username), and (2) that you don't really trust the chat servers to give you the public keys in the first place. If you want to send a message to someone e2e encrypted, Keybase's servers can't trick you into sending to the wrong person. And anyone stealing an account is publicly discoverable. There are many more differences, but I think that primarily sums it up.

Love to see Keybase expanding to other use cases. What about an integration with Livestorm for end-to-end encrypted live video presentations? ;)

@kmehrabi comparing it to Slack is a bit too much… ;)
