Beeper – All Your Chats in One App (beeperhq.com)

While working on Pebble, we ran into a lot of issues as we tried to enable messaging from the watch. For example, we never figured out how to send an iMessage or WhatsApp reply. While digging around for a solution to that problem, I thought it was odd that no one had built a Adrium/Trillian/Meebo chat app for modern chat networks. I buried that thought for a while, until I learned about two years ago.

I added #CactusComments to my blog the other day. Means, that people can now officially and publicly bash against the grammar gore I write :scremcat:

Cactus is a heavily slimmed-down #FLOSS #Matrix client that you can easily embed to your website. Coolest thing is, that it's actually Matrix, so your visitors and you can moderate/write/read comments with your fav Matrix client.

KUDOS to the Cactus folks. Great work!

I think every actor worth her/his salt wanted to partake in the film #DontLookUp because it is a superb satirical mirror to the current era in all its dark and terrifying hues.

It is to this century what #TruemansShow was to the 20th century.

‘It parodies our inaction’: #DontLookUp, an allegory of the climate crisis, lauded by activists - theguardian.com/environment/20 rather telling how many film critics refuse to look up...

This week's donation went to Nico, otherwise known as DeepBlueV7.X. They contribute to Nheko which has quickly become my favorite Matrix client. They accept donations through Liberapay.

If you haven't tried Nheko out and use Matrix I would recommend it.

I’m a climate scientist. Don’t Look Up captures the madness I see every day - theguardian.com/commentisfree/ manages to be both entertaining and terrifying; recommended #DontLookUp

This image makes me think about how one impact of Brexit was just to make the UK more like the US.

#UnpopularOpinion

I'm sorry #XMPP fans, but I first used #Jabber like 20 years ago, and the user experience is still just as bad and confusing.

The usability and learnability of @matrix is far above and beyond in every way.

Yes, #Matrix has a lot of performance improvements still needed, but the two just can't compare. And yes, I self-host both of them.
