It's a browser extension that recommends "better" alternative products and services via in-page popups, based on community-curated lists. Available for all Chromium and Firefox-based browsers.

We live in times where the distributions costs are hampering the adoption of higher-quality (which could mean security, privacy, ethics, local etc) products. I am hoping that this extension can eventually be managed by orgs like IFF, EFF or FSF.

Here we are, a new Synapse release candidate for you. v1.14.0rc1 contains OpenID Connect support, improved cache tuning and room version 6. Check it out and help us test. github.com/matrix-org/synapse/

New blog post! It's a quick overview over the different keys involved in #matrix 's new cross signing. jcg.re/blog/quick-overview-mat

Zoom acquired Keybase today.

Keybase helped me to identify a trend in the software industry: using a pretty UI to cover up the disruption of an open ecosystem with a closed, centralized replacement. Keybase seemed cool on the face of it - making encryption easier is a laudible goal, and PGP certainly could use the improvement. But, thanks to Keybase, now I ask different questions upfront.

Beware the Keybase formula:

1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded

Boosts greatly appreciated!

Amnesty International calls Google and Facebook a threat to human rights. We believe that centralization of power in hands of #GAFAM is indeed extremely dangerous. #privacy #decentralization matter for a free society!

Since we've officially entered Christmas season, here's a quick gift recommendation, aka probably my favourite book I've read this year: The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. An amazing epic fantasy storyline with a refreshing and well integrated feminist and inclusive inclination, great and well designed characters, loved it 馃憣
