Why everyone should be using Signal instead of WhatsApp | WIRED UK

I've been testing #Jami again after a number of software updates. Text chat performance has improved markedly. It's delivering each message quickly, and in order. Users can now send both voice messages and video messages, which is great for doing voice/ video chat on patchy network connection. Now I'm excited for the group text chat feature to ship!

A wee reminder to the folks diving into Zoom, Slack and other "free" proprietary services... remember, they can & do change their terms at their whim, suddenly. If you build systems around these tools, realise you'll eventually have to pay through the nose or work out how to bear the pain of changing your systems to a more cost-effective option in future. I can guarantee it.

Videoconferencing software has become essential to individuals and businesses living under COVID-19 social distancing. If Zoom were free, we could work together to find ways to control access and combat trolls. In the meantime, use free alternatives like instead!

Decided to try out messenger. Do you guys use it? Any pros / cons? I remember using Ring (its previous name) a while ago but it wasn't a pleasant experience.

Calling smartphone equipped teenagers 'digital natives' is a mistake because a smartphone makes you a consumer rather than a native of anything.

If you want a child to become a digital native give them an actual computer instead of a corporate controlled and curated consumer device.

Decided to ditch in favour of a static site for my homepage. I'm not saying WordPress is bad: it's just too bloated for my needs. So far I've been playing with and I think I've finally found a theme that suits me.

Have you guys heard about ? It's a brand new private messenger that doesn't require a phone number. I've just added my Session ID to my profile if you'd like to get in touch / try it out 😉

Updated to the latest version, yay! But don't seem to work. Is it somehow related to the Mastodon instance I'm using? @xaphanpl any ideas?

You probably won't care but I actually prefer the basic interface here on . It allows me to focus on a given tab better. K, 10x, bye 😉
