@MarkAmesExiled@twitter.com I got rid of WhatsApp and got Delta Chat instead. It looks like a messenger, but it just uses your email. If other people don't have it, it will look like an email at their end.

Some day we hope to use peermaps and/or the associated software stack to finally incorporated decentralized mapping into all Delta Chat apps ... keep up the good work, substack!

@thorn As far as ethically questionable marketing goes, I'm afraid we can't compete with Facebook and their PR teams 😉

We're promoting open-source and an open ecosystem. You don't have to use Snikket, there are many alternatives on the #XMPP network that Snikket is part of, such as Movim, @dino, @gajim, @tigase and Conversations.

And XMPP isn't the only open network, there's also #Matrix and #DeltaChat. All of us are working on decentralized alternatives to WhatsApp, powered by open-source.

#whatsapp & #facebook are down. Your chance to persuade your relatives to use #deltachat as a messenger :D

"Decentralized" systems are susceptible to catastrophic failure if every node runs the same software created by a single entity. Open Source doesn't change this. *Social* decentralization and diverse implementations for a protocol provide better resilience and distributed agency.

Some interesting offers for flamewar topics below :) In the last two years we have build an all-Rust modern e-mail stack, with mime/pgp/smtp/imap handling sorted and mostly available as separate crates to build on.

As #Signal has had severe problems recently due to its centralised nature, here are some decentralised libre alternatives with Fediverse accounts:

➡️ @snikket_im - Initiative to give XMPP a consistent look and feel on instances and apps, to make it more attractive to new users

➡️ @xmpp - XMPP standards foundation

➡️ @delta - Decentralised messaging through email

➡️ @matrix - Best known for the Element client

➡️ @briar - Peer-to-peer encrypted messaging

➡️ @Jami - Peer-to-peer Skype alternative

I can no longer recommend Bing reseller DuckDuckGo after learning about their racist hiring practices.

Just use Searx, which is open source, can be run by anyone, and doesn't have to hide the fact that all results come from other engines.

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.
