    .oO US now has its very own Putin.  could this possibly reduce the tension between US and Russia, since criticizing the misbehavior of each others' presidents will always backfire?

    RT bob <https://gnusocial.freedombone.net/bob>

    I like this very concise summary of the recent history of independent implementations of Signal, from a tweet by Marie Gutbub:

     * Hi @moxie we are @LibreSignal. We use Signal with no Google
     * DONT USE OUR SERVER
     * Will you federate with us ?
     * NO.

    @JanKusanagi is completely right here.. XMPP + OMEMO is super easy to use. There are sooo many publicly available XMPP servers (or you can run your own). Plus dispite a lot of moaning that I see XMPP + OTR is really not that hard to use. which always seems to be the argument against it. Heck there's even XMPP + GPG which does have it's issues but also has it's uses.


    So we have:


    Federated Vs. Centralized

    Open Standards Vs. Openish depending it seems on @moxies mood

    Many clients Vs. Mostly the one

    etc., etc.


    It boggles my mind that people still waste their time and lives on proprietary/centralized chat silos.


    You can see my full views on the issue here

    @Freemor while I agree with the sentiment, last time I tried XMPP + OMEMO between two different clients (Conversations and Gajim) I didn't manage to get it to work. So I wouldn't call it super easy :-) Maybe support has improved a lot recently, though?

    sazius at 2016-11-03T19:28:09Z

    @sazius you're right. "super easy" may have been over stating it a tad. Let's just call it.. less hassle then OTR. Which I personally don't find much of a hassle.

    Freemor at 2016-11-03T20:30:40Z

    Heh, well, for me personally I've had more luck with OTR. But OMEMO is definitely very promising.
