@jcgruenhage this rocks :) it's a bit confusing to call the self-signing key a 'Device Signing Key' (DSK) rather than 'Self Signing Key' (SSK) though - as it sounds a bit like you'd use it to sign others' devices rather than your own?
New blog post! It's a quick overview over the different keys involved in #matrix 's new cross signing. https://jcg.re/blog/quick-overview-matrix-cross-signing/
I’m moving comm to @[email protected] and @[email protected] due to the high proportion of FOSS projects, like Manjaro, Rock64, PinePhone et al being on those networks. I can be reached @[email protected]:http://fosstodon.org & @[email protected]:http://hackerfraternity.org on each network.
@MathiasRenner noted ;)

@morph we started standing up instances that federate with the public matrix network about a week ago. there's still lots of missing APIs (it has about 33% coverage), but it's advancing rapidly. In other words, it's late alpha, and should be entering beta fairly soon, at which point you can try experimenting with it in earnest. You could do so now, but it'll be a bit hit & miss (and we reserve the right to break the DB schema from under you)
@balder4 we're thinking about it :)
Der Messenger auf Basis von @[email protected] ist unser erstes gemeinsames Open-Source-Projekt mit der @[email protected] und auch ein Beitrag zur #DigitalenSouveränität. Na, neugierig?

Hello everyone! I'd like to announce that the @[email protected] mesh net is online!
We have a riot/matrix server!
Villages! Message me and I'll add you to the DNS Server or delegate it to you!
Please visit https://defconmesh.net/ for instructions!
@feld given there aren’t any servers in p2p matrix yet, there isn’t anywhere else to store msgs than the browser :) however, e2ee conversations (once dendrite supports e2ee) would of course not be plaintext
A few hours before we announced Automattic’s investment in New Vector, @[email protected] was interviewed by @[email protected] from @[email protected]: nice trip into the origins of WordPress and Matt’s vision in general + Q&A from some of fmc’s portfolio startups!
Come and read This Week in Matrix! New editions of Dendrite, Mirage, FluffyChat and more... PLUS a great Matrix Live with @[email protected] - learn more about the Automattic investment! https://matrix.org/blog/2020/05/22/this-week-in-matrix-2020-05-22
@jacobgonzales doing our best :)
@[email protected] @[email protected] @[email protected] @[email protected] This makes me really, really happy. The possibilites are so vast! I'm imagining a matrix-powered tumblr and also wordpress comments! But I'm sure there's a place for e-commerce in there too. Woohoo!!! 🎉🎉🎉🚀🚀🚀
@syster Sure, Automattic could just launch a Matrix hosting product themselves. Or they could instead fund the core Matrix team via NV. The benefit for Matrix if NV went public is that there would be a lot of $ around to keep Matrix development on the track. If NV was sold instead, it'd only be to someone who would continue to fund Matrix dev. Automattic gets zero benefit for decision making over Matrix through this, but they do get input into making NV a sustainable biz.
@rumblestiltskin Status invested $5M in New Vector to bootstrap the company and generally support decentralisation. We've also helped each other out a bunch on our respective comms projects :)
@syster it's an equity investment in New Vector (the for-profit which the original Matrix team set up) - so they'll want their money back in future (e.g. if New Vector went public somehow). But the thesis is that it's possible to ethically and sustainably sell Matrix services without compromising the open source / open network / open standard side - much as Wordpress.com does for Wordpress.org.
