@tobi just as we owe the Internet's existence to Staatsapparate, Matrix is a neutral protocol that can be used by anyone for anything - it's a tool of liberation, not constraint. The reason to celebrate is that the more large entities (be they France, Germany, Mozilla, etc) coming on board the protocol, the more support there is for it to improve for the benefit of everyone.
