Great chart here. Shows how small gold and bitcoin are today within the world's monetary system. Both have multiples to run but it will take a long time with or without a crisis.

The big lie of our current time is that inflation is extremely low, justifying repressive monetary policy such as negative rates.

Rent and house prices are skyrocketing all across Germany's large cities (and all over the world).

Everyone needs shelter.

If you are using Jabber/XMPP but haven’t been able to convince your friends yet, you should get them to use Quicksy.im instead. It will only take them 60 seconds to sign up and contact you on your regular XMPP address.

Based on a reply on the Fediverse, I've gone with funkwhale.mastodon.host which allows uploads of up to 1GB per user.

I'm working on a song that I'd like to publish soon. Until now I've just uploaded everything to Soundcloud, however I'd like to also try out Funkwhale.

I don't want to self-host an instance however.

Can someone recommend a good instance?

Thanks

There is one slide in my presentation on the State of the XMPP community that you should not miss out on: Conversations is getting support for Jingle audio/video calls. (Probably in early 2020)

Recording of Conversations developer Daniel Gultsch on the state of the #xmpp community in 2019 at #froscon

Some takeaways:

1) there is a growing network of people working on a #public federated chat network based on XMPP. There has been a lot of activity in the space in recent years. This activity is partly due to the development sprints, many of which last year have been organized by @pep

2) a bunch of new (and existing) clients continue working on usability (cross platform, consistent UIs, support for mobile, end-to-end encryption). Particularly web clients such as ConverseJS by @jcbrand are promising.

3) A directory to search public discussion channels exists: search.jabbercat.org/rooms/1

4) Ongoing experimentation with what can be built on top of XMPP as a federated protocol by for example @Goffi

5) Conversations for Android has secured funding to implement a Voice / Video calls!

I was reminded of this quote as I cut the 5.0.0 release of Converse.js client last night.

This is a huge (yuuuge) release, but there is still much more that could be done and bugs that aren't yet fixed. Alas, I ran out of time.

A big new feature is support for XEP-0198 stream management with websocket. I'm now only using BOSH as a fallback, otherwise it's not really necessary.

We got a tiny step closer to fully end-to-end encrypted message content in #XMPP.
Version 0.0.1 of XEP-420: Stanza Content Encryption (#SCE) just got published.
Still it is a long way till we're there.

So WhatsApp scans your content as you create it, if it find anything of interest it will silently send it to FB servers for analysis (all pre-encryption on the device side). Basically wiretapping on device. Pretty horrible stuff! twitter.com/paul_shetler/statu

In the USSR two things could land you in prison: not having a job (known as social parasitism or idling) or entrepreneurship. There's a significant overlap between these two groups of people, and that's where most of the economic output of capitalism comes from.
