I love it when researchers bring the receipts.
Rant: Nine reasons why I don't believe in current VR/AR technology.
HoloLens, Magic Leap, and Oculus: Mind-blowing videos, and the market is estimated to explode to $200 billion by 2025 (Statista). So what's wrong?
HCI research tells why we haven't seen a killer app yet: 1/22
"CLAs also give rise to an asymmetry of legal power among a project's participants, which also discourages the growth of strong contributor and user communities around a project", couldn't agree more with Richard Fontana https://opensource.com/article/19/2/cla-problems #FreeSoftware #OpenSource #governance #licensing #CLA
@kaniini If anything, looking into this deeper was a good exercise in recognizing that XMPP is built by a bunch of backend guys, while Matrix is built by a bunch of frontend guys.
XMPP servers work reliably with little resources. But there's no client that is user friendly.
Matrix has beautiful clients. But the backend is just not usable at all.
Solution would be to throw away XMPP clients and Matrix backends, and switch the Matrix clients to XMPP. And then improve things from there.
This sounds interesting. Has anybody used it that would be willing to comment?

It makes me uncomfortable how people have adopted corporate language when talking about themselves on the internet. You are not a corporation or a persona. You are a whole person.
You don't have a "brand" – you have passions and interests. You don't "create content" – you share thoughts, words, ideas, knowledge, and a whole galaxy of other things.
There are plenty of people out there who want to categorise you and put you in a box. Don't help them to do this.
You're so much more than that. 💚
