well, one good thing stemming from all companies hailing their crypto investors is that that drove me back to Fedi and Matrix

@pixel I'm still waiting for Matrix to get their group Voice channel feature going on the stable build. When that happens I'll gladly ditch Discord and alike... although I do want that more because of the inhuman surveillance laws the EU is pushing through right now than the crypto bollocks.

@Natanox @pixel

Element recently introduced Spaces, which are equivalent to Discord servers. Each Space can have Rooms, which are equivalent to Discord channels.

At this point, Element is an open source, freedom respecting, end-to-end encrypted, decentralised Discord. There is hardly a reason to use Discord other than the stubborn people unwilling to get off it.

@inference @Natanox the stubborn people are the main reason I still have to stick with both Twitter and Discord

and I'd love not to

@inference @Natanox and Matrix is awesome, but I have a hard time sticking to it personally, coming from my friend list on there having...3 people on it.

@pixel @Natanox

I'm migrating all of my open source projects to Matrix (Element for Spaces and Rooms), from Discord. I recently posted an announcement about it.

@inference @Natanox

Hmm, I could do the same, but I know at least one project that'd probably would die from it.

Others I might get to adopt.

@pixel @Natanox

If people know how to use GitLab/GitHub during OSS projects, they should know the importance of open source communication platforms.

They aren't OSS fans if they don't care, and are probably a liability, anyway.
