1/ In defense of #Signal. Yes, I'm a guy that just posted a roundup of distributed/mesh messengers changelog.complete.org/archive of which #Signal was obviously not part. I am really excited about the potential of those.

But to the general public, I still recommend Signal. Here's why.

@jgoerzen
Nice writeup! I totally agree!

This is not the first of the calls for us "techies" to push our families and friends over to Signal.

What I have not yet seen, is examples of what to send. How did you convince your family? Let's help eachother and share these messages!

I understand that this message should be tweaked to the recipients specific concerns, but a broad list of examples could really help lower the barrier to start this work!

#pushsignal ?

And this is what I replied after getting the serious question: "Why are you quitting WhatsApp?"

@Erik @kingannoy @jgoerzen Uhm je hebt het over decentraal , maar dan zou je eigenlijk ook niet op de hoofd server matrix.org mogen zitten ;)
