Abbiamo deciso di aggiungere @firstname.lastname@example.org nel nostro articolo sulle #alternative a #Whatsapp. Un client diverso dagli altri che trasforma le email in chat! Curiosa e interessante novità da tenere d'occhio! https://www.lealternative.net/2020/01/09/alternative-a-whatsapp#delta-chat #privacy #deleteFacebook #14febbraio #chat
The #cryptoleaks are very strong reason why true free software matters. It also displays a good level of absurdity to require certificates (like we did with ISO27000) and then go behind your back anyway. Security theater hurts everyone in the end.
I put a very small pull request in today for Delta Chat, a PGP-encrypted, self-hosted chat system (built atop email), which uses Autocrypt to help those less familiar with PGP.
A tiny, tiny patch, for a small UI issue, but still one of the joys of open source software.

Thanks to @OpenTechFund@twitter.com for the continued support of Delta Chat developments, and for prominently promoting our recent milestones, Android and iOS appstore releases. More releases and other surprises are coming soon :)
Check out what some of OTF's supported projects have been up to in our latest report, featuring updates from @email@example.com, @WireGuardVPN@twitter.com, @OpenObservatory@twitter.com, a new report on China/Shadowsocks, a few newly added projects, and more! https://www.opentech.fund/news/december-2019-monthly-report/
If you're interested in doing anything with email in @firstname.lastname@example.org, @email@example.com
is kicking off a mail WG - I'm involved too. Cc @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com https://internals.rust-lang.org/t/starting-a-rust-mail-wg/11678/2
Here is a Delta Chat talk from end December at #36c3 -- it discusses Delta Chat's unique messenger-approach, its use of the e-mail server network, its resilience against internet shutdowns, the crypto engine rPGP, and then tons of Q&A from the audience https://media.ccc.de/v/36c3-oio-154-delta-chat-e-mail-based-messaging-the-rustocalypse-and-ux-driven-approach-ybti-wefixthenet-session-#t=1169
As it is using email as a message container, Delta Chat is probably the most decentralized IM software. Plus it encrypts E2E, even for group conversations.
@firstname.lastname@example.org A-ha! I hadn’t picked up on the importance/usefulness of Autocrypt being an interoperable standard. If the likes of @email@example.com could include this by default, that would really help to increase usage… 🤞
until yesterday, you could only use Delta Chat on Android, Windows, macOS, and Linux. Since today, all major platforms are supported and you can also use Delta Chat on your iPhone :) https://delta.chat/en/2020-01-09-iOS-appstore-release
At #36c3 today at 12:30 (https://streaming.media.ccc.de/36c3/halld) we will share why we fund important projects and open source/hardware developers like @cryptpad , @manyver_se , @delta , @fediversespace , @qyliss , @nitrokey and many, many more. Want to know more? Check out our talk or learn more about our open calls for privacy & trust enhancing tech and open search & discovery -> https://nlnet.nl/news/2019/20191201-call.html
#36C3 The Moxie talk was what I expected. A long list of reasons why he doesn't like decentralization. His arguments that centralized systems are more censorship resistant by relying on proxies/vpns were flimsy and the usual idea of foccussing on things which are easy rather than things which are more robust to changes isn't futureproof at all.
There are going to be even more problems in future and centralized systems are not going to hold up well. If whatever jurisdiction Moxie's server is in decides to have an internet shutdown then it's game over. It doesn't matter if the user interface is easy if the server is gone.
Come to our session tonight at 21:00 and join us :)
