Pretty Difficult Privacy

Disclaimer: I could write books about online privacy, freedom of speech and how encryption fits into that picture. There are others out there who can do a better job at that and who have way more experience in crypto than I have. So, I got a keybase.io invite. Awesome. But what problem is keybase trying to solve? I created my first GPG key in 2000 by way of checking out shiny new things.
