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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.
