  1. Hi William. Keyczar is just a software library, not a service. Your keys live wherever you want them to. Google is not holding keys in escrow or anything like.

    Who knows why the comment system does what it does. It doesn’t even have a password field to enter your password, so even though you have a password, you have to ‘activate’ your comments each time.

    This looks like a cross between an advertisement and a press-release, barely warmed over.

    hackaday is looking more & more like slashdot, but without the +5 funny
