    no idea how the article i did on xmpp went viral but it received around 30K views

  104. Ramiro Romani

    it just got picked up on hacker news and that was it

  105. Ramiro Romani

    imo xmpp is setup to gain a lot of users this year

  106. Ramiro Romani

    i am trying to insert it in every relevant conversation

  107. Ramiro Romani

    for instance, disroot just shut down their matrix instance because of privacy concerns

  108. Ramiro Romani

    a privacy focused community ditched matrix in favor of xmpp. that could be spun into a huge win

  109. Ramiro Romani

    but it needs people to shed light on the story

  110. Ramiro Romani

    dw i got y'alls backs

  111. Ramiro Romani

    and will try to stay updated with new developments here

    FWIW there is no chance of a virtual FOSDEM stand for us this year

  152. MattJ

    They only invited people who applied for a stand last year, and we didn't

  153. emus

    really? omg...

  154. Licaon_Kter

    Wtf?! It's virtual so what's the issue!?!

  155. MattJ

    I think each stand has a Matrix channel and a website section. They said they have some process that has to run to generate them, and it takes days. They said they don't have the volunteer power to handle more than last year.

  156. MattJ

    I strongly feel that we, as a community, need to do something this year

  157. emus

    just wow

  158. emus

    > MattJ escribió: > I strongly feel that we, as a community, need to do something this year Yes - but Matt - focus on your own situation first

  159. MattJ

    I'm happy to help out with it (not for a couple of months at least though)

  160. MattJ

    But we should start coming up with ideas

  161. emus

    im alread GSoC admin so thats covered :)

  162. MattJ

    That's good

  163. MattJ

    You've been doing a good job promoting that :)

  210. emus

    yes, I would really like to actively support such an event

  211. vanitasvitae

    Did you already sent a mail with contact address and pentabarf accounts to stands@fosdem.org in case they do another run?

  212. vanitasvitae

    At the moment I translate the thoughts (alternatives to WhatsApp, interoperability, E2EE, pseudo security) to englisch - they are going to be published (hopefully) the next few days. If you like the content, a link in the "hacker news" (and everywere else) would be nice.
