The 2019 Matrix Holiday Special is here!! Our very own festive attempt to review everything that happened in 2019 while looking forward into the mists of 2020. Thanks all supporting Matrix through a crazy year - here’s to the next decade! https://matrix.org/blog/2019/12/24/the-2019-matrix-holiday-update/

It's cool to see @Matrix.org mentioned in different publications in various languages.

This Week In Matrix is here - featuring Mozilla, a Glimpse of the Matrix, 'cortex' Rust workers for Synapse, and hints of the E2EE frenzy happening in Riotland... https://matrix.org/blog/2019/12/20/this-week-in-matrix-2019-12-20/

RT @MarcoInEnglish@twitter.com

On day 26 of my extended advent calendar, I introduce a bit of @matrixdotorg@twitter.com, and show you how to get around @RiotChat@twitter.com with a screen reader. #a11y http://marcozehe.de/2019/12/20/how-to-get-around-matrix-and-riot-with-a-screen-reader/

Synchronous Messaging at Mozilla: The Decision - Mozilla


Wooooo! 😍 Super excited that #Mozilla chose to go with #Matrix for their #IRC replacement.

I've pushed a lot of rocks up a lot of hills, and every now and then one of them goes over. https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/synchronous-messaging-at-mozilla-the-decision/50620

Really excited that Mozilla has selected Matrix, @RiotChat@twitter.com and @ModularIM@twitter.com as the successor to IRC for all their community chat needs! The future will be open - both open source, open open standard and open web :D https://matrix.org/blog/2019/12/19/welcoming-mozilla-to-matrix/

Horrifying: the injustice here starts with the nonfree software you're required to use with the ironically named "Freestyle Libre" glucose monitor, and leads to the conclusion that Abbott Labs legally owns what amounts to actual parts of your body:
Abbott Labs kills free tool that lets you own the blood-sugar data from your glucose monitor, saying it violates copyright law

Breaking encryption puts everyone at risk.

"Even the Defense Department is now pointing out that the government’s quest to weaken encryption lies somewhere between counterproductive and downright harmful." https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/akwwn5/the-defense-department-says-it-needs-the-encryption-the-fbi-wants-to-break

This Week in Matrix contains the latest news on all Matrix projects! https://matrix.org/blog/2019/12/13/this-week-in-matrix-2019-12-13/ Learn about the latest bridging developments, the spec, Cross-signing and MORE #decentralisation #twim #alreadydecentralised

I started teaching my son to program today, using Etoys and http://wiki.squeakland.org/index.php/LearningWithEtoysI3 , and he's enjoying it so far. I decided to start with Etoys because it's designed not just for programming, but as a learning environment. It's a shame that it's not as actively developed any more.
And now my son is teaching my daughter how to use it. :)

Oh, but I can do that too!

Yesterday I received my #PinePhone from @PINE64! Today I had fun with it and postmarketOS, here are some photos:
- the default applications
- the Fractal @matrix client

It's a glorious time for Linux on mobile!



Yesterday I received my #Librem5 from @purism! Today I had fun with it, here are some photos:
- the default applications
- the Fractal @matrix client
- the Komikku webcomic reader
- the terminal application







It's Friday, late afternoon, and the time has come again to read the latest #matrix news, so take a break and read This Week in Matrix! This week has news about THREE separate iOS clients, new location-bot and more! https://matrix.org/blog/2019/12/06/this-week-in-matrix-2019-12-06/ #decentralisation #twim

This is outrageous and dangerous. People in China are now required to have their faces scanned when registering new mobile phone services.
