I came across some time ago and I agree with the problem it's trying to solve which I see as "sustainability in free software", I think I'd be happy to get money for what I've done, especially when I know it's being used commercially. I care about my users' freedoms, and as long as I keep this I'm fine departing from any definition of "Free software". Anybody tried similar alternative solutions? Thoughts? Feedback? And what were your goals in doing so.

reCAPTCHA is one of many "free" systems that are seemingly helpful and innocent, but are actually part of the #Google data-collection ecosphere.

If you are a #website / app #developer, consider using tools & APIs that do not collect user & system information.

If you must use a particular system that integrates with reCAPTCHA or similar, please provide them feedback that you would like alternatives to Google services.

Users, choose to solicit sites that value your #privacy and user data.

#XSF #Summit 2020 in #Brussels

Topic 1: #XMPP Shortage Audit

We talk about ways in which xmpp comes short compared to other solutions like Slack, WhatsApp etc.

On the list are things such as contact discovery, snippets, microblogging ("stories"), stickers, bots and other integrations.

Some of those are already specified but lack implementation, others are not yet tackled at all.

"First they came for #Assange and #Chelsea, and I didn't care because I read too many articles about #Assange's persona and was gullible.

Then they came for #Greenwald and I didn't care because I 'had no time' and because 'hacking is a crime, you see?' and because Brazil is far away..

Then I realized: 'oh wait?! what?! Shit!!!', shortly before I got arrested myself by fascists hordes."

I've just released Converse.js version 6.0.0.

Release notes:

The biggest change is support for storing data (e.g. messages) in IndexedDB which has no size restrictions. It's not yet the default store, but will be eventually.

Another big change is support for XEP-0156 Alternative Connections. Now on you can connect directly to your #xmpp server without requiring a BOSH middleman.
