Enter the Matrix

Matthew Hodgson (technical co-founder) joined us to talk about Matrix - an open source project and open standard for secure, decentralized, real-time communication. It’s open source, it’s decentralized, it’s end-to-end-encrypted, and it’s also self-sovereign. Matrix also provides a bridge feature to bridge existing platforms and communication silos into a global open matrix of communication. A recent big win for Matrix was Mozilla’s announcement of switching off its IRC network that it had been using for 22 years and now uses Matrix instead.

When I was using Pine a VM user told me that it’s pronounced “pain”. (And since it’s not obvious from Google, VM is a mail reader in Emacs.)

I definitely felt the “pain” myself back when I’d have to remote into a server and check all of the email the system had sent to itself as it caught my application errors 😆

That’s the only scenario I can recall using pine, but my Linux use only goes back to 2002 or so…
