If there's one tool that I have found to be beneficial during social distancing, it's Keybase.

While it doesn't have the audio/video calling of others, it has provided the most consistent experience in a messaging platform, with privacy and security as a key focus.

If someone were wanting to move their certain social group to an online system, Keybase is a great option.

But it's not just about messaging, thanks to the pandemic. This is about replacing part of what's missing now that IRL socialization is limited, and I think Keybase is a good place to start.

It has a better user experience on all devices than other privacy-minded systems, and has some great non-messaging features like file sharing to round things out.

The police (nearest station is 20 minutes away) just drove in the cup-de-sac and are knocking on the door of one of the families now.

I'm not sure what is says that I, the (afaik) most conspiracy theory believing, science denying, anti-whatever-ing, dimensh-b parent in the cul-de-sac, have to tell my kids that they can't go play with the other kids on the street because of the wuhan flu.

(Even if I'm doing it just to avoid the flak of the public eye, it is odd seeing other families letting their kids interact.)

Our local Canada Post branch is cashless now.

Not sure if that’s even legal. Seems like it shouldn’t be, especially for a government-run thing.

What is the primary source of your (first) name?

Yes, it's Dutch. For those who prefer instrumental music while you're working, this kinda counts. For those who hate things they can't understand, just imagine that the vocalizations are another instrument.

Anyone else find it odd Facebook hasn't yet done one a modified version of their "safety check" things for ?

Is it just me, or are personal email newsletters (i.e. run by one person for their own personal enterprises) making a comeback? I'm enjoying it. It feel less like the "broadcasting" of social media.
