So I've started on some designs for a stand-alone web site for #ZoomingOut. Figuring out a user-friendly structure will be the major challenge, I think. But the list itself also needs some updates, and if you're willing to help out, these are some things in need of testing, researching etc.:

- #WebRTC performance in desktop Safari

- #Signal's group video calling

- #Element/#Matrix overall update

- Adding #Telegram & #Wire to the list?

Boosts appreciated!

I'm going to share this New Republic article about Gates' influence on access to medicine one more time, because it's so important to critically examine the role of philanthropy.

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
