@mike @matrix I was (am still) using #jabber for 15+ years. In theory I like it a lot but in practice the clients all had different shortcomings and OMEMO isn't working well with multiple devices. Most important the acceptance dropped to almost zero. In contrast #matrix got a lot of traction in the recent years and works less troublesome for us. We are using it internally for more than a year and are quite happy. Also more and more people from the tech community start using it.

TIL: C-M-e (also Strg+Alt+E) in einer #bash expandet Aliase, Variablen und Historyreferenzen in der aktuellen Zeile. Aus

lh $HOME

wird also

ls -lh /home/scy

Leider scheint das nicht für Globs (wie *.md) oder Sequenzen (wie {1..5}) zu funktionieren … weiß da jemand was?

As a reminder, because #Matrix announced today that several millions venture capital is floating to their dev team at NewVector.

Most of the infrastructure of matrix is depending on centralized service.

Self hosting will not help you with that, unless you exclude any federation with matrix.org and any other instance that uses cloudflare and any instance that doesn't use cloudflare but federates with one that does and nobody you communicate with uses riot at riot.im and...

That makes #matrix privacy invasive and difficult to use for anyone that cares about privacy.
The default behavior is: sending all sorts of metadata to cloudflare also when you self host it.

I believe one shouldn't expect to much from a company, that used google analytics for their webchat at riot.im.

Fleischindustrie... jedes 2. Huhn aus dem Supermarkt ist mit multiresistenten Keimen belastet. Jedes 3. sogar mit Keimen, die gegen die letzten Reserve-Antibiotika immun sind. Dank Billigfleisch ist demnächst wieder jede kleine Wunde potenziell tödlich. http://bit.ly/2XbNHV0

Spotify is buying up all the popular podcasts and removing them from the commons in order to drive you to their platform.

Podcasts have somehow stayed open access, built on standards, and just (mostly) work. Moving them to a proprietary platform just so a few people (ie: not you) can make money is bad for everyone who isn't making money. (ie: you.)

Russia asked for access to Delta Chat user data ... so we had some explaining to do :) Cheers to decentralized app designs and the e-mail system's separation of apps and message transport, something that Whatsapp, Telegram and the likes fail to offer ... delta.chat/en/2020-05-01-roska

Did you know that #Zoom uses #XMPP for their chat? Isn't it ironic that while large parts of the software freedom movement consider XMPP as outdated and refuse to use it, companies building commercially successful proprietary and centralized solutions on top of it... 🤔 #OpenStandards #FreeSoftware
