So it is (my interpretation) looking toward either "no deal" or "no Brexit" (UK can cancel the process any moment until April 12th). I sincerely hope we get the latter, for all of us, both in Europe and UK.

Although observing the UK after a Brexit gives us concrete evidence to backup our claim that we need the EU to survive in a globalized world, I cannot wish for this sad outcome to become the reality.

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 matrix.org/blog/2021/02/15/how. Huge thanks to @FOSDEM@twitter.com for putting their faith in Matrix & to everyone who helped make it a success! 🎉❄️🎆

Google is a "cornerstone sponsor" of FOSDEM this year, which is being run entirely on Matrix, accessible on Android via Element, which has just been pulled from Google's Play Store. FOSDEM is in a week. This all makes perfect sense.

RDP at home, or "how to operate the Linux desktop playing an HD movie via HDMI on tele (in Firefox of course) from the Windows laptop", or pause/play without leaving your couch.

Emacs survey results are out! Lots of interesting tidbits: people love magit, ivy and flycheck, and a striking number of respondents are fairly new to Emacs! This seems great for the health of the community.
