Der durch die App #Conversations hochgeschätzte Daniel Gultsch hat #Quicksy vorgestellt - einen mobilen XMPP-Client (wie Conversations) aber mit Registrierung per Telefonnummer.

Idee: Ein besseres Whatsapp schaffen.

Meiner Meinung nach ein falscher Schritt: Denn so landen wie bei anderen Messengern ("Datenkraken") abermals fremde Kontaktdaten OHNE EINVERSTÄNDNIS auf diverse Server.

Bequemlichkeit darf nicht obsiegen!

❝I don’t believe our species can survive unless we fix this (social media).
We cannot have a society in which, if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is if it’s financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them.❞

Habe vorhin im xmpp/jabber muc von @kuketzblog einen sehr guten Artikel von einem user aufgeschnappt.

Es geht mal wieder um das Thema WhatsApp.

In meinen Augen ein Artikel der so ziemlich alle meine Kritikpunkte an WhatsApp zusammenfasst und untermauert.

Ganz klare Leseempfehlung! Auch für die, die aus allgemein bekannten Gründen kein WhatsApp nutzen!

Why is Signal developing some new ultra special feature instead of putting simple proxy support to Signal for Android to use Signal with Orbot? The more nonsense-features Signal is implementing, the more I distrust Signal.

Mastodon :mastodon: security:

In August, Mastodon 2.4.4 was released which contains two fixes for security vulnerabilities.

Today, 39.5% of all Mastodon instances which show their version number are still running vulnerable Mastodon < 2.4.4.

We already checked this twice:

– 10/1/18: 42% vulnerable
– 8/23/18: 38.6% vulnerable

Either the remaining instances are all unmaintained or admins refuse to update.
