    mike: I think matrix did that on purpose because they really want to be a closed centralized platform but use open sores marketing

  24. tom

    Like even telegram markets themselvs as open sores

  25. tom

    But that only really extends to the client. And it's not the kind of open source your used to. It's every now and then they dump a source code archive somewhere of their client and that's it.

  26. kikuchiyo has left

  27. tom

    Matrix has to have a way to differentiate itself. Also if you take a look at matrix infrastructure you'll notice it's very similar to gmail. Most users are on one big centralized server and also, there is only really 1 practical server implementation and client. Look at a list of known matrix instances and the software they are running

  28. tom

    Unofficially using other implementations is discouraged

  29. tom

    Plus using a standard URL format for user ids would make interop easier.

    CognitiveDissonance: I've got both Synapse+Matrix via Docker and MetronomeIM + JSXC & GNU Social on my dedicated server but, they aren't used much at the moment. Unfortunately, I don't have a whole lot of feedback other than they're both great.

  64. thndrbvr

    There are other server implementations in the works, they just aren't finished/production ready last I checked. There's plenty of good Matrix clients, even in F-droid.

    thndrbvr: I only see Element (and 3 forks) in F-Droid. Pattle has ceased development last month. There's only Synapse+Element+matrix.org, there's money only for that, the bespoke "slack killer" VCs pay for. They bought out their competition, Gitter.

  75. Licaon_Kter has left

  76. thndrbvr

    Schildichat is what I switched to the other day. Do forks (of Element) not count? They're young and may go far enough down their own path in the future.

    If we want to save any project or entity from VCs, we, the people and smaller organizations, should donate or otherwise contribute (financially). Speaking from experience, it's not easy to get things off the ground without boatloads of cash.

    thndrbvr: forks depend on upstream and their $$ from VCs, same I don't count Pix-Art, Snikket, Conver6at6on6 and Quicksy as "different" apps from Conversations. But we have Xabber, aTalk, yaxim, StorkIM and Movim by comparison.

  91. Licaon_Kter

    There are plenty of projects that have started as forks but eventually their codebase has changed so much that they're something else entirely. Not XMPP related but, what comes to mind ATM is Firefox -> Palemoon.

    Hopefully Matrix/Element will have established enough funding elsewhere to be self sustainable and sooner or later pay off their debts. This can't be done if people chastise and boycott them for taking VC money. What we need is a true competitor to the mainstream user abusive communication platforms/whatever. I'm starting a non-profit social network that uses these among other libre softwares. Right now it's funded from my day job. Hopefully others do similar things because that's what the world needs.

    The problem "with" XMPP seems to be that companies take what they can from it, slap proprietary code on top, close off decentralization aspects and only promote themselves. It'd be nice if others didn't do this. The only one I can think of would be Purism if they ever get their XMPP server up. Right now it's just Matrix-Synapse, I think. And Purism is pretty small and niche in the grand scheme of things but I feel like they're growing. They seem to have some goverment people/agencies wanting the Librem 5 phone so, who knows maybe we'll have a small influx of Purism XMPP chatters in the next couple years.

    I think we need to talk to schools more. Get them to use (Jitsi Meet) instead of Zoom et. al.

    Why don't you run Matrix then? They integrade JitsiMeet too.

    Part of the issue is that these for profit companies are instilling a certain ideology in (business) students. They market and this is what professors and management know and that's it. We need to show them other viable ways of doing things.

    I don't think zoom would or could at this point given that they're handing data over to the US gov't. They're so big now that even if they did open the doors they'd still be able to make money. But, now that they have tasted that sweet green and have gotten their fame, how could they be humble and cooperative with the community? How could they give up the attention? They're only concerned with getting even bigger and staying on top I'm sure. Never mind truly helping the world. I mean, they bought Keybase.io and for what? I haven't heard that group being able to really improve anything besides PR.

    Security Now and Threatwire were covering Zoom's back and forth with encryption and basically just determined not to use Zoom because they were untrustworthy.

    It might be that paying customers/users can have e2e encryption but, since it's closed source, we'll never know if there's a back door.
