Network Effects are hard. Have learned that well in Wire.

Erm… haven't been here for a bit. Why is Mastodon telling me I'm not following anyone?

@teller I agree with you on both points. I, too, have been wondering about whether setting up an account for the nonprofit I work for would be a way to help people learn of our work and engage with us. But, I do like the "individual" ethos here right now, and, as you said, too many other channels right now. Still, it's something I will keep monitoring. There may be a point where that makes sense.

2nd time I'm wondering if should set up Wire account here as the cool kids are moving.

But I like the non-commercial ethos of Mastodon (so far) and also it would mean another channel to monitor and maintain. Too many already.

So, Wire ( has started opening its server-side code:

They had already released a subset of the client code (same location as above) and have committed to releasing both client & server source code in full.

A review of Wire's security by @veorq and @marver can be found here:

Wire has started open sourcing its server. Easy self-hosting and federation in the future.

Old Skype team mates are building some cool delivery robots. Not bad for Estonian tech startup to end up on Kimmel show.

Looks like there's finally some traffic here.

I wish it was easier to discover others here
