May the 4th be with you. I got my first dose of the AZ vaccine yesterday, which means that my body is now building a Death Star and trying to figure out how to blow it up.

isn't AZ more like pre-built replica of Death Star? :) (Not an mRNA vaccine)
My understanding (based on ) is that AZ is DNA-based rather than mRNA based, but it's still the same underlying principle in that it contains the blueprints for your body to create the spike protein.

#fluffychat 0.30.0 has been released today 🎉🎉🎉 with a big refactoring under the hood, a lot of bug fixes, better room alias management, minor design improvements, Linux desktop notifications aaaaaaaand Linux arm64 support. 🐧

In theory it should run on #pinephone or #librem5 but I have no device to test it. Anyone here who wants to try and send me screenshots? 🙂

It's working for me on the PP with Manjaro phosh, installed via flathub. I can connect to my own homeserver without problems and send/read encrypted messages!

Awesome work!

RT And the best thing: The federation across different institutions really works. I can still participate in project related chats with my former team while seamlessly supporting lectures at All out of one tool, one login.

Trying to get a vaccine here is frustrating, with at least three different streams that you can go through to get vaccinated, one of which I only found out about from Reddit. But I managed to book a vaccination for next Monday. I'll consider it an early birthday present.
First vaccination done, and second vaccination appointment booked. mastodon (AP)

NeoChat can now handle URLs. Then clicking on them, your browser will ask you if you want to open them in NeoChat. Thanks to for designing the URLs scheme and adding the library support to libQuotient.

Someone told me that, yes, yes, you should! <3

Ugh. Our Premier "apologizes" for the latest round restrictions and says that he "moved too fast". No, the problem is that you moved too slowly (there were warnings weeks ago that stronger measures needed to be implemented), and that you didn't listen to your science advisors about what measures to implement and implemented the wrong measures. mastodon (AP)

The matrix: URI scheme (designed by yours truly, with plenty of help from the community) is now "safelisted" by WHATWG: - looking forward to , allowing web applications to register as matrix: URI handlers!

ELI5, will this remove the need for links? I'll be able to place a link on a page that will directly open the "default" matrix client? Eg Element or Nheko or Neochat?

The Ontario government's plan for controlling the spread of Covid-19 includes giving police the authority to stop people who are outside and get their address, which even the police departments say they don't want, but you just know that it will be used by some police officers in questionable ways.

But their plan does not include making sure that essential workers have paid sick days, even though their science advisory team asked for it, and workplaces are one of the biggest causes of spread. mastodon (AP)

Super cool to see Olm/Megolm being used outside the Matrix ecosystem for end-to-end encrypted document collaboration!


🎉 I'm really excited to announce Serenity Notes 🥳

It's an end-to-end encrypted collaborative notes app allowing you to compose private & shared notes.

Think of a simple Google Docs, but end-to-end encrypted and offline-first.


If Microsoft buys Discord, they'll have bought all the conversations that happened in Discord.

Have a great #InternationalWomensDay all the women out there <3

Maybe some day society has evolved far enough that we wont need this yearly reminder that, yes, gender equality should absolutely be a thing. And that even if someone doesn't have the same equipment than you between their feet, you should still treat them with respect.


I'll do a painting demo live for the Matrix Foundation, don't miss it!

My new RockPro64 is now attached to a pair of hard drives. Setup went pretty smoothly, aside from that fact that I couldn't get the official Debian image to work, and ended up switching to Armbian. But copying ~2TB of data from my old NAS is going to take a little while...

Want all the gory details of how we hosted the world's largest free/open source conference #FOSDEM21 via Matrix? We just posted the full writeup at Huge thanks to for putting their faith in Matrix & to everyone who helped make it a success! 🎉❄️🎆

Here is a reminder that your service provider's employees all have access to your data, and may not have your best interests at heart. This is one reason why we need end-to-end encryption.

Just one hour to go! We're back with a great lineup this Wednesday! Hear, project lead, discuss Linux on the Desktop, presents, PLUS learn about how Matrix powered #fosdem/#fosdem21!

If you weren't among the 33,600 people 😮 at online #FOSDEM this weekend, be advised: 100% #FOSS for online conferences is production ready *today*. Say NO to any Zoom (or other proprietary software) online events from now on. Demand software freedom!

It's BACK! After a hiatus in January, we're back with a great lineup this Wednesday! Hear from discuss Linux on the Desktop (what else!?), presents, PLUS learn about how Matrix powered #fosdem/#fosdem21!

Today I gave #Nheko (0.8.1) another try (on #postmarketOS edge running on the #Librem5), and with two little tweaks in the apps settings (Touchscreen mode on and Show buttons in timeline off) it's the best #matrix client I ever used on #LinuxPhones.
