A bit of a reflection of my ongoing effort to protect family communication from prying eyes. A bit of an invitation to others trying to talk about #privacy
Day 17 of #100DaysToOffload
@lopeztel, my wife and I have used lots of different things to communicate over the years. The last two were Keybase and now Element with our own homeserver. These last two were interesting moves because of the motivations. Keybase was partly for the Stellar airdrop, but after the Zoom acquisition, I didn’t feel like I could get her to switch on those grounds. But then she asked to switch to something else because of notification performance. 🤷♂️
@lopeztel, I don’t know if I’ll get the rest of my family on Matrix, but I’m pretty sure the privacy arguments won’t work for them either, for the reasons you mentioned.
@IslandUsurper I get it, as I said. I'll take what I can get... Sometimes all the technical arguments in the world loose to convenience or sticking to what you know 🤷♂️
