The problem is that this kind of class reductionist analysis is completely blind to the negative and exploitative results of the work of these workers. Painting then as victims of capitalism, when they are the same time also active perpetrators of it is actively detrimental to fighting global capitalism.
It is true that Slack like chat work-spaces are not a strong point of XMPP (it shines as a personal messenger), but you can set up a system that fulfills nearly all your requirements (I think search is only per room), with ConverseJS Fullscreen (or Movim), a Prosody server and the newish webhook component. Or with Gajim and Conversations as separate clients.
P.s.: “smoothly on mobile” & element ??? The Mattermost mobile client is also not exactly great. In that area at least XMPP is clearly better.
Yeah, this is interesting, and apparently based on some micro-sat company’s technology that SpaceX bought 1-2 years ago.
On a side-node: China’s Baidu GPS-like also includes a similar technology for bi-directional communication that was launched a few weeks ago, but for now it seems to be more targeted at rescue services in east-Asia.
I think what texts like this miss is that the “old internet” isn’t really gone, you just have to look for it a bit harder.
What is really happening is that the internet is eating television, it started with more direct equivalents like Youtube, but it is this general consumption only pattern what makes apps like TikTok popular and which have always existed on TV.
Even in the days of yore of the internet the old 90:9:1 ratio applied, so ignoring the vast majority of users that only lurk is a mistake I think.
Not an appstore but works ok: https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageUpdate
Modern Distros ask if they should “integrate” appimages on the first launch.
Ich persönlich halte XMPP für die weitaus bessere Lösung für private Nutzung. Das was du eventuell bald mit Fluffy und Conduit haben könntest ist alles in besser schon mit snikket.org verfügbar.
Sorry, but the main language of this community is English. Please provide at least an automatic translation of your post. Deepl.com does a good job for Spanish.
This only tells us what they do by default and without gag-order. They could still be forced to log specific users and are barred from telling us by legal request.
Furthermore, it is known from Telegram disclosures that the FBI has been approaching staff from messenger companies with the offer of quite a lot of money to act as moles inside these companies.
As long as Signal is a centralized service with servers in the US, neither problem can be solved and that makes Signal inherently unsafe to use.
I was referring to the “no account creation required” and given how other online services seem to be doing fine with accounts I don’t think it is as big of a hurdle as you make it seem.
Of course automatic discovery of accounts based on phone numbers is a different topic, but there are also plenty of people who hate that feature (Telegram has a special feature to not allow that even).
Yeah, they have a railway system already. I used it a few years ago. Nice sleeper cars with some soviet nostalgia style… but it is really slow even by “slow rail” standards so an upgrade is probably warranted.
