@matrix it's great and all, but why do you publish stuff on the most centralized blogging platform ever created, that asks me every time to create an account? :(

Keep up the good work and congrats on the release!

@matrix Is there any way we can help you with the setup of your blog? (other than by writing Riot :p)

Have you considered using a federated blog platform as Plume or

@matrix Thanks. Unfortunately I find the user experience in the browser still very bad.

Still continues to bug me about cookie policy every time I log in.

Still tries to force me to enable desktop notifications; I turned them off on purpose but apparently that's not acceptable to the developer.

Can't find the #tchncs room, but that may be a browser setting.I guess I rather use a (non-electron) desktop application, but they all seem to be in various stages of beta.

@matrix Emoji device verification!! awesome 😁

@matrix I haven't been able to tell anywhere: how do I actually enable E2EE? do I need to verify all devices from all users in a room? why do I have six copies of "" listed? as a user, what do I do to encrypt my chats? #matrix #e2e

@migratory To encrypt your chat, hit the cog button at the top right or click on the room name to go to Settings. Then in Security/Privacy you can turn on encryption. You have 6 copies of Riot listed because you'll have logged in on 6 different browser sessions; go to User Settings (click on your name in the top left) to view the 'devices' and delete the ones you are no longer using.

Any chance of getting a theme that's less blue?

I find the old theme much easier on the eyes :'(
