Seeing a lot of people moving to Signal the last few days. Started messaging my Whatsapp contacts with this gentle-shaming template. Let's see how well it works:
Hey I'm moving as many conversations as possible to Signal before Whatsapp starts sharing all its data with the rest of Facebook at the end of the month. Install it here if you like: https://signal.org/
I'm probably going to have to keep Whatsapp anyway. So it's your choice if you want to stay behind with the boomers and school parent groups. 😉

Our latest blog post summarizes our activities and challenges over this past year, and includes a bit of a teaser about what to expect in early 2021!
CryptPad and the team have received some attention recently through various channels: a Reddit AMA thread, a podcast, presentations, and a blog interview. A summary and some links: https://blog.cryptpad.fr/2020/12/18/Recent-interviews-and-presentations/
Some of you may remember that CryptPad was down for over 24h last week. We've written up a detailed report of what happened and how we hope to handle the next failure more gracefully.
We just tagged the last major release of CryptPad v3. It's available on https://cryptpad.fr.
It introduces many improvements for encrypted uploads and a client-side document cache to speed up page load time.
Release notes are on GitHub:(https://github.com/xwiki-labs/cryptpad/releases/tag/3.25.0). #privacy
