Do you have a non-technical iPhone user in your circle of family or friends? Do you wish that one day they will use #XMPP to communicate with you?

We're still looking for more non-technical people to participate in usability studies of Snikket to help us identify areas for improvement. It will be a short online session with a UX researcher, you just need a computer and browser. No experience of Snikket is required. Last available slots are **tomorrow**!

havent tried on a mac or ipad but looking forward to it 💫

I cannot believe that #Signal is not — or will not one day — be compromised, just like #ProtonMail did.
We should rather use decentralized messaging apps, such as @session, @briar or the #xmpp protocol.

Last week I made a new major release for Converse.

The biggest change is that the UI is now rendered entirely via declarative web components.

I've written a blog post highlighting some of the more notable changes in this release.

I need an instant messenger that is #FreeSoftware, #decentralized, secure, #privacy-respecting, and lets me use my own #encryption keys.

Oh wait, #XMPP already exists...

A group that is partially involved in Mellium is considering setting up a new cooperatively governed and run node in the #XMPP network. If you're interested in being a part of that effort, reach out! Here or in our chat room.

🎉 Our iOS app is finally public! 🎉

This is a huge milestone for the project, and proof of what we can accomplish when a community comes together around a purpose.

The app link will automatically appear in the next Snikket server update (along with some other app-related fixes), but the post has manual instructions for admins who just can't wait 🙂

Eroberung durch die #Taliban

#Afghanistan: Der Westen versagt

von Stephan Anpalagan

Die #Nato-Mächte tun so, als hätten sie die Machtergreifung der Taliban und das verheerende Chaos in Afghanistan nicht kommen sehen. Dabei hat sich beides lange angekündigt. Ich erkläre dir die gesamte Entwicklung, bis heute.

Really happy and exited to see blog powered by #Libervia (and thus #XMPP) at . is a company offering a real phone number accessible by XMPP and #SIP (and thus the plethora or clients).

The blog theme has been adapted to their needs, using Libervia customisation capabilities.

And of course, it works with other XMPP clients, such as #Movim.

Thanks @singpolyma #SIP

Imagine this: The messaging 🗨 platform you use to connect with your family and friends shuts down tomorrow. How do you secure your #data?

Does this worry you? Then you must meet project XPORTA - #XMPP Account Portability!

"People are often forced to agree to unfair data collection practices just to communicate with their loved ones. Open standards, interoperability and data portability are the technical foundations required to improve this situation."

Interview von Rico Grimm

Regierungen haben den Klimwandel jahrzehntelang unterschätzt – weil sie sich vor allem von #Wirtschaftswissenschaftler|n beraten lassen, sagt der Ökonom Steve Keen.

Wenn du "digitalkompetenter Politiker" bei #WISH bestellst..
😂 🤣 😎…

Wem die Bundesbürger die höchste Digitalkompetenz zuschreiben? #FDP-Chef ⁦@c_lindner⁩. ⁦#CDU-Chef @ArminLaschet⁩ landet auf dem vorletzten Platz. #digitalisierung #bundestagswahl

Nach den Upload Filtern wird sich weiterhin mit Ruhm bekleckert von Seiten der CDU.
