The title was meant to be provocative, that’s for sure. I could have said “The strengths and weaknesses of Let’s Encrypt…” and then went into technical details… I might have gotten a few claps from the pocket protector set (who I wasn’t writing for) and no one would have otherwise read my article.

Instead I got 100k+views, 50k-odd reads, and pushing on 2k claps… And have started a huge discussion that a non-technical business reader of The Startup can actually follow.

I am a charter member of the pocket-protector set, but old enough to make fun of them and otherwise have a healthy skepticism of tech.
