A bigger blog post will have to wait, but just as a brief note:

Let's Encrypt is now publicly trusted. In fact, this blog is using a certificate from Let's Encrypt. And so is usr.bin.coffee, of course.

Let's Encrypt's beta is starting to really take off now.

It's amazing, but in the last 12 months, a team of 8 people (plus me), came together and built a publicly-trusted Certificate Authority. It's been a privilege going on this journey with them.
