And I thought I just got unpopular all of a sudden. Thanks for mentioning it.
I love Signal, but I do wish I was able to go more decentralized.
You need to start somewhere. E.g. I migrated my family to XMPP by basically setting up Conversations.im on their phones and telling them it’s the only way to contact me. Then a very small group of technical friends. That’s actually the group of people I regularly talk to so I don’t mind that my roster is tens of people not hundreds 🤷
Haha, that’s exactly the same reasoning I used (resources)!
I’m hosting the XMPP server on a minimal DigitalOcean droplet but there are people that use Raspberry Pis :) and for Matrix I’m using it for other projects on a server hosted by a friend but they warned me “not to join big rooms or it will be problematic” :)
Conversations.im and Siskin iOS also have E2EE enabled by default so be sure to recommend these two (sadly Dino.im doesn’t do that :( ).
