Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these:
-some Matrix protocol tool
-some XMPP protocol tool
-Jitsi
-Jami

What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.

&ltRe-posting:
As someone who've followed the matrix/riot developments for the past couple of years - the main thing to keep your eye on is this:
>Declaring End-to-end Encryption stable and turning it on by default for private rooms. (12/14 tasks completed):
https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/issues/6779

The last statement (March 18) from the devs reads:
>We're roughly a few weeks away from releasing this to the stable channel, but that may change if we uncover new areas of the project that we feel must be fixed before release.
>The team is working hard on this, and we're excited to share it with everyone when it's ready.

When it's done I'd say matrix is the clear winner. Jami still has some bugs but will eventually be very good as well. Jitsi is the more stable one out of the three that's just a bit more messy to set up (that's why it's not recommended that often, similarly to XMPP).

Just to highlight the need to study secure alternatives, the major teleconferencing tool exploding in popularity right now, Zoom, has been in several privacy scandals the last week and more over the last year. Even some ostensibly communist and socialist parties and organizations have been using Zoom to communicate.

Has anyone here ever considered using or switching too JMP services to replace your cell phone provider? It is a service that operatives through XMPP and forwards your messages (which are encrypted to the point of transit) out to a cell phone tower. It seems like a superior service than having a cell phone.
It still runs off wifi, but, honestly wifi is so prevalent these days it has had little to no impact on my life.

Normies will hate you as fascist STEMbro chuds anyway lmao.

Tech nerds have worked for a free and open internet, constantly battling to keep protocols and standards open (when orgs like IBM, Microsoft and now Twitter or Facebook would happily close them up if they could), pushing for net neutrality, and writing a fuckton of reliable and professional grade free software that now makes up the infrastructure for the internet. There have also been efforts to start making hardware more open.
But you know as well as me that the average left-wing normie doesn't care about any of that. Just looking at the way RMS was treated will tell you all about what's in store for STEMcucks after the revolution.

Ooooh fuck OFFFF!

"tech bros" will not comprise shit. Your middle class ass ruined enough movements.

again and again I am reminded just how genius was the soviet symbol - hammer and sickle
but without that gay ass star of a backstabbing elitist vanguard party of a technical intelligentsia

a perfect design - red background symbolizing all the blood of the toiling masses throughout history, hammer and sickle symbolizing where we came from who's the fucking boss here, whose state it is

and most importantly - no fucking sneaked in gay ass paintbrushes, feather pens, compass representing fucking backstabbing "intelligentsia"

>As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state.

how are you gonna do this retarded thechfaggot? have Arab spergout and Kazachstan teach you nothing? THEY FUCKING SHUT DOWN THE INTERNET YOU STUPID DUMBFUCK

The main matrix server can't and shouldn't be trusted because it is centralized and it's dumb they even made that a thing but there's zero reason to believe that an open source project that allows people to host their own server of the protocol itself is compromised.

The glow is not in the code but in it's architecture. Yes it's open source and you can host your own server but it's so impractical that the vast majority of people just use Martix.org and have their metadata scooped up.

The thing i dont understand why people dont say anything when so many people know end to ends dont mean squat lol. Its a fact PGP can be hacked in 8 days thats 3 years ago , they got the enterprise pgp phones and would shield from remote wipe with lead bag.

Then we went to encrochat ECC that went worse because they made custom phones and the IMEI where pitiful small compared to iphone android ect then they just raided the server lol but at least they tried burning it down lol

Then we go to sky ECC enterprise with highest encryption self deleting messages , longevity and a 1 million dollar bug bvounty but they were under rico for months and after 11 years gave up the servers!!

And dont get me started on ciphr supposably ready for quantum lol.

THese are expensive end to end encrypted enterprise blackberry at first then others like iphone all with it policys no cameras no mics then later not cross server then up too ecc and above encryption end to end yet they ALL fell when criminals started using but thats not the point , the point is when they wanted to they did it and Panama and switzerland wich is pure myth the latter gave up the server codes or had access to it when they ALL claimed not too lol.

Nothing is encrypted folks , it would be too massive a breach to be put up with. Signal is lucky it has too many users to burn over 1 shitbird. Not too mention stingrays.

With a pc you can at least do triple VPN TOR DNS quad 9 ect but youy need 2 routers.

Both are client-server based. Both support chat, voice, video. Both support encryption.
