Recently I became interested in Keybase.io and really wanted to be able explore my network-graph using Gephi, so I wrote a quick tool to collect the data from Keybase; dump it into GraphML file; then loaded it up in Gephi. The results nicely highlight who-knows-who; the strengths and weaknesses in my own Keybase network; and super connector users with many followers.
Keybase is an interesting project, and the circle-of-trust improvements their tooling provides is probably better than anything else out there at the moment. The obvious concern is whether they have a business model that provides sufficient value to people (or enterprises) that will make Keybase long-term viable.
