for this lab in our cybersecurity class we get to do web exploitation, which is fun, except the grading scripts use some ancient version of phantomjs so we have to write javascript like it's 2009 or something and uggggggh

@bob perhaps to be clearer — by "more about" I mean something like "this is what Keybase is trying to do that other services doing cryptography don't", although the most user-facing parts of their pitch do seem to be encrypted chat like you said

whenever you move your mouse or click something you see little ripples of some supernatural quality propagate outwards from the mouse at the speed of javascript

useless superpower: you can perceive every DOM event fired in a modern browser (whether or not there are listeners attached)

in other news: it takes a special kind of mad genius to have the last levels in a rhythm game be in 5/4 time and 7/4 time

this is probably something i should have posted much earlier but:
the third galactic is happening in a few hours! check us out if you like ! we have some great stuff lined up and i am excited
