And instead choosing to install Instagram and WhatsApp;)

Fluffy chat is by far the easiest as it behaves more like an Instant Messenger with less focus on groups which is what makes element confusing. There’s also much easier key handling and verification across devices. For anyone using a mainstream app like WhatsApp, element is a mess…confusing as hell.

This is why I’m dreaming of a turn key xmpp server run on a raspberry pi or similar that’s just plug and play. I’m surprised this is not a priority for people at pine64.org it would fix so many problems with private communication… Regular people could actually host their own xmpp servers for friends and family, just like we use VoIP boxes.

I hope the developers are aware of yunohost. One click installs that don’t rely on docker are what the world needs.

This is very cool but I never felt comfortable using it. Personally, I prefer using pretty easy privacy, pep for android and also as a Thunderbird add-on. As long as the recipient also uses the client it’s effortless, works with any provider.

That’s cool! I use the blabber fork by them, it’s nice too!

Do I remember some how they’re connected to the jing os development? Are they the same?

I agree, what a lot of bullshit, and you know what makes it bad? It has a business model, that’s the whole focus. It’s inevitable that it turns evil, how can it not. Investors, they use venture capital, want their pound of flesh. Sooner or later they’ll come for it. Peertube is free in every sense, it’s about video distribution, not commerce. I envision peertube becoming for video what WordPress is to websites.

I can’t wait until all this tech goes from theory to practical end user applications

This looks really interesting, I’ve never used Zulip but I love the concept

The great thing about peertube-search.com is that you can more easily filter content and actually scroll through latest uploads to discover random new content without a query:)

if you share a link from a subscription, that is on another server there is an option to share the original URL which solves this problem.
