Did you know that #FreedomBox offers a one-click install of @matrix?

#Matrix is software for messaging and VoIP. #FreedomBox installs #Matrix for you and helps you configure it.

#Matrix hosts your chat rooms, which support conference calls and video calls! Just connect with the #Riot chat app. Riot has a beautiful UI!

The KDE community is adding Matrix to its instant messaging communication infrastructure. Join our server, get a cool KDE handle and become part of the KDE conversation.

Matrix provides graphical instant messaging for desktop and mobile (with all its goodies: gifs, emojis, etc.), bridging for IRC channels, point to point encryption, file sharing, and more stuff that will help improve KDE's communications.

Hey hey, ever wonder what we'll be working on next? We published a roadmap for backend development - there's even a video

Breaking: The text of #Article13 and the #EU #Copyright Directive has just been finalised

Please reshare widely and take action. This has the potential to endanger the #internet as we know it, making it more and more composed of only large platforms.

This has the possibility of killing #alternative #socialmedia projects and small #startups trying to compete with the big #corporations.

This will put everything I work for as a #hobby and at #work. So if you don't take action because the internet, take action because otherwise I might need to find new hobbies and work!

Ps. And yes, this affects people outside #Europe too. The internet knows no boundaries.

Today is the20th anniversary of XMPP, also known as Jabber. I don't remember much about how I first heard about Jabber, but it was likely through theSlashdot post. I've been running my own personal XMPP server for a while (I believe I started with ejabberd, though now it runsprosody), and I've written someXMPP-related software.

Nowadays, I work full-time on Matrix, which you could say is a competitor... Show more...
Yup. It was (and still is) a POC. It was successful in relaying text messages back and forth, but needed more polish. I may get more time to work on it later, but it's been parked for now.

The 2018 Matrix Holiday Special is here - a wrap-up of all the stuff the core Matrix team got up to this year, and a bit of speculation about what 2019 could bring. Thanks to all for using and supporting Matrix - happy holidays!! 🎄🎅🎉

We're excited to announce that we've incorporated The Foundation: providing a formal, independent, non-profit, neutral custodian for the Matrix standard for decades to come!! We're still bootstrapping the governance; see for details Home | (Tom Lant)
