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.

Resisting Law Enforcement’s Siren Song: A Call for Cryptographers to Improve Trust and Security

The security community should its time and talents making the digital world safer rather than demolishing what trust and security still remain in our technology, our devices, and our infrastructure.

We're excited to announce that we've incorporated The http://Matrix.org Foundation: providing a formal, independent, non-profit, neutral custodian for the Matrix standard for decades to come!!
