well, :joy: :joy:


I wish someone developed a FOSS, privacy-focused messenger with a high end UI/UX (i.e. well developed clients for desktop / mobile / web) ten years ago. IMO it would have a lot of potential to be really successful.

Look at discord or telegram; they were able to become big in spite of the network effects around incumbent messaging services.

There is a natural inclination to keep messaging private. No one wants Zuck-zuck or other random hoodlums spying on their conversations. Privacy in text messaging is extremely intuitive, unlike tech like DNS, cookies and fingerprinting which are very abstract.


Definitely agree, it’s always shocking to me that this solution hasn’t been solved. It’s such an obvious need that has no viable solution in the self-hosted space. Wire is very close I’d say, I’m just waiting for federation support.

Fully agree. And they also censor p0rn channels.
