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.

Our Tobias Fella spoke with @linuxnews_de about what's next for NeoChat.

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!

Hello, Cactus Comments! 👋🌵 - Cactus Comments

Step aside #Disqus, #Matrix powered website embedded comments are coming 🤩


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.

Small #nheko promo I made for #FOSDEM. See you at the #matrix stand! (And watch the last second of the video before criticizing it ;p)

Hey, I want to share something with you: Today my parents (70 and 65 years old) installed #FluffyChat on their iPhones for the first time. They have never used Matrix before but they were able to register an account on and start a chat with me by entering my mxid with no advice! My mother said it was easy like in Telegram. 😍

Ordered a Pine64 RockPro64 to replace our aging home server. Looking forward to playing with it.
My order has been shipped. No idea how long it will take to cross the ocean and half the continent to get here.
It has made it across the ocean. So hopefully it will be in my hands some time next week.
My new toy just came in. Just in time for my guess of "some time next week" to be correct. One box was a bit banged up, but the boxes inside seem fine.


Wow I did not know how many (German) universities are already using for their probably hundreds of thousands of students and staff.

Didn't expect to open Hacker News and see the Prosody blog post on the front page 🙂

I really hope that the growing attention to the practices of big tech will push more people to discover #XMPP and other decentralized alternatives to those large platforms.

<sigh> has decided to start blocking my emails again for no reason.

I hope Matrix will not end like this

I'm looking for Free Software success stories in 2020, especially in the education area. Do you know schools which started to organize their home schooling efforts with Free Software during the pandemic? Please share it here: #Education #fsfe #FreeSoftware #OpenSource
