    i've been using matrix with three friends for the past couple of months, and while i do want matrix to be a thing, the fact that the only fully featured client is element, and that element is an electron app, is a major drawback, in addition to the number of disconnects the server suffers on regular basis. is starting to make me want to move on to something else.
  • Today I wiped my socials.
    I honestly don't feel like I'm missing out, but I can understand that this is highly subjective. I didn't grow up in a time where these things were essential, so that's probably a factor too. I still like the general "space" and still looking for something better, currently looking at matrix, which seems like a promising solution overall (at least for my personal needs).

    P2P (aka Briar) and decentralized (aka Matrix) are an exception. Law enforcement can't monitor direct conversations (unless by monitoring the internet traffic itself), and won't go after personal centralized servers that aren't run by a company.
