🔵 WordPress Project to Evaluate Replacing Slack with Matrix Open Source Chat @matrixdotorg @matrix

@didek yup. although likelihood is that synapse will continue to mature as the typical server and dendrite will focus on small/embedded use cases.

Discord is the worst thing to happen to niche communities. A forum that cant be archived, can't be read without membership, cant be indexed on Google or Wayback for searchability. We let one company monopolize the majority of our communication.

We have launched our new online voting system for GMs. It is @matrix based and you need the #element app on mobile (or head to on your laptop), to vote.

Download the app and then follow the steps! :balliol: 💕

Performance updates in Synapse, 100% parity with Synapse for the server-server API in Dendrite, and Element X Android progressing well.

That, and much more happened this week in Matrix!

@ff7 don’t leave the beta; the beta setting will disappear in favour of a normal on/off setting shortly

🚨 Product update 🚨

Threads is now live on all platforms... we repeat, threads is now live on all platforms!

A big thanks to the team for all their hard work on this and we hope you're in your Element using it 💚

It's been a while, but yesterday we released Dendrite 0.10.9, containing our first Helm chart, several bug fixes and optimizations™

@roadriverrail @kkarhan @blender if VRML had come with decentralised communication primitives, a mature content authoring system (not openinventor), built in editor, high performance implementations, and a sandboxed client scripting environment that supported a wide range of scripting and native languages, and hardware which supported it well… then perhaps it would be a better analogy :)

@roadriverrail @kkarhan @blender VRML /could/ be a similar analogy, but having played with both, this makes VRML feel like gopher. Just like JS at first felt like a strange bodgy hack on the web for annoying popups and animations, before folks finally realised it could create a whole new class of networked crossplatform apps, thirdroom’s engine can support a whole new class of interoperable multiparty spatial collaboration in the idiom of the open web.

@kkarhan @blender this is similar to saying that the Web should have stuck to static HTML, that JS and webapps are a disaster and that apps should be left to the desktop. You are missing the point that Matrix is & always has been a communication protocol; explicitly not just for chat. We don’t want to live in a world where Facebook owns communication in spatial apps like they have with WhatsApp, and that is why a tiny % of Element’s $ goes to supporting Third Room.

Indescribably exciting to have just been the first ever(!) person to enter Matrix in VR, thanks to @[email protected]'s first cut of WebXR support. Add in freeform scripting via our WebSG API and built-in direct-manipulation scene editor, and the possibilities will be infinite!! 🤯🚀👽 boosted

It was a good day at online #CreativeFreedomSummit! We chatted in @matrix room, got there #PeerTube stream and #Etherpad widgets, just-in-time transcribed captions synchronized with the speakers as well (very convenient for folks that can't rely on sound for whatever reason, #a11y). Heard a lot of useful insights about #Inkscape and #Penpot, my questions got answers. :rickhey:

Two more days of the summit are coming, starting with the scheduled stream in <17 hours from the time I post this. 🔴 boosted

Anyways, I’m not sure how accesible Matrix is, but there is like a web client etc. Maybe it could at least be a place to try building a community there?

@rija github login will still work. github accesss control to rooms will not (yet) unfortunately - you’ll have to keep the permissions manually synced.
