Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these: -some Matrix protocol tool -some XMPP protocol tool -Jitsi -Jami What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.
<Re-posting: As someone who've followed the matrix/riot developments for the past couple of years - the main thing to keep your eye on is this: >Declaring End-to-end Encryption stable and turning it on by default for private rooms. (12/14 tasks completed): https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/issues/6779 The last statement (March 18) from the devs reads: >We're roughly a few weeks away from releasing this to the stable channel, but that may change if we uncover new areas of the project that we feel must be fixed before release. >The team is working hard on this, and we're excited to share it with everyone when it's ready. When it's done I'd say matrix is the clear winner. Jami still has some bugs but will eventually be very good as well. Jitsi is the more stable one out of the three that's just a bit more messy to set up (that's why it's not recommended that often, similarly to XMPP).
I came from this thread >>>/leftypol/398552. This thread is good and we should work to keep it active and reach a valuable conclusion.
