Anyone out there have any opinions using pass vs keepass?

I've been using keepass for a while, but it's gui-ness doesn't quite mesh 100% with a lot of my workflow. I'm kind of reluctant to step out of the terminal go to a gui app, get a password, go back to the terminal, etc.

Today's Death by Tech post are my thoughts on the state of the consumer internet and what the future holds. My favourite passage:

"These days, a successful company is a parasite on the populace around it. It consumes resources and erodes infrastructure while striving to give as little of its money as possible back to the community. For some reason, America likes that. We know that because it awards these companies with trillion-dollar market caps."
