Facebook recently announced that users can upload and publish their PGP public key on their profiles. This seems like a great way to assure you that you are getting a genuine key, assuming that the key owner's Facebook profile is intact.
I created my first PGP key a long time ago, hoping that I'd be exchanging encrypted (or at least signed) emails all the time. But it takes two to communicate. I have already published my public key on my profile. So if we are friends on Facebook, you can try downloading the key and send my an encrypted message.
Google is shutting down Google Reader.
Google Reader has been the heart of my information consumption. It's not just a really fast feed aggregator. It allows you to dig through a blog's history conveniently. I'm quite disappointed to see it go.
I've now moved my feeds to Feedly. The process was smooth. Let's see how it will live up to the expectation.
Couldn't believe I'd say this. I kinda prefer Windows 8 over Ubuntu 12.10 now. Had to install Windows for thesis writing and it feels faster and smoother. Maybe I fucked Ubuntu up a bit (continually upgraded since 7.04). Also the bonus is games! Still have to go back to Ubuntu for coding stuff though. Too many dependencies.
