Last Sunday the UK/US/CA/AU/NZ/IN/JP govts issued a statement asking tech companies to add backdoors into E2E encryption. This is a big deal: unfortunately *backdoors do not work*. Read about our alternative: combating abuse via decentralised reputation.πŸ”’ matrix.org/blog/2020/10/19/com

Hey @[email protected] I just attended the @[email protected] 'Open Tech will save us' meetup and the @[email protected] meet.coop presentation - what a fantastic project! So inspirational! πŸ₯³πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

Heads up that since 12:30 UTC, the matrix.org synapse has been running 2 sharded event persister workers: the 1st time we've ever split the job of DB writing across multiple workers! CPU is reassuringly halved & solves one of the big remaining bottlenecks in Synapse.

Join us on stream.matrix.org and youtube.com/watch?v=AeNuEWW4aV to learn all about Dendrite, DeltaChat and decentralisation, plus meet.coop the co-op run tech provider

In TWO HOURS we'll go live with Open Tech Will Save Us #7: Learn about Matrix Dendrite entering beta, thoughts on with DeltaChat folk, PLUS learn about the running of meet.coop, a videoconf service operated by coops

Join us this time tomorrow for Open Tech Will Save Us #7! matrix.org/open-tech-will-save Learn about Matrix Dendrite entering beta, thoughts on with DeltaChat folk, PLUS learn about the running of meet.coop, a videoconf service operated by coops

@beedaddy dendrite isn’t at the point where you can safely trust it with your data yet, so a mig tool might give the wrong idea. but we will provide one; don’t worry! :)

Awesome to see folks spinning up Dendrites to test and even writing up install guides! OpenBSD at marc.info/?l=openbsd-ports&m=1 and Debian at pieterhollander.nl/post/dendri. We’ll be working through all the teething issues as fast as we can. Thanks for helping test!

This Week in Matrix is out now! News about Gitter, news about homeservers and some exciting client updates - widgets, Hydrogen and more! matrix.org/blog/2020/10/09/thi

After a rather twisty journey we are overexcited to declare that Dendrite (the next-gen Golang homeserver from the core Matrix team) has officially entered beta!! πŸŽ‰ Don't trust it with your data yet, but please spin up an instance & help us hunt the bugs! matrix.org/blog/2020/10/08/den

Looking forward to Open Tech Will Save Us #7, around this time next week! (5pm UTC) We'll learn about the current status of the Dendrite Matrix server (it's progressed since you last looked!), chat to folk from DeltaChat about tech and more! 2020-10-14 matrix.org/open-tech-will-save

@sheogorath (and while they're not spamming yet, it's a pattern we've been analysing where spam bots slowly flood in before they're activated. if this was just data collection they'd use a single bot).

@sheogorath at {abuse,security}@matrix.org we're worrying about the health of the whole open network - not just the matrix.org homeserver. For instance, we keep comms open with the admins of the other public signup servers to coordinate on abuse like this. The reason to keep this sort of thing discreet is because otherwise you're just tipping off the spammer to how you're identifying their spam, which just encourages them to take countermeasures.

@sheogorath the best on stuff like this is to mail [email protected] or [email protected] - by making your analysis public like this it makes it easier for the spammers to see how to change their pattern.
