I've been using Riot.im for a few weeks, both the web and the mobile client, and...

Pretty sure Riot is planning on changing their name soon. I've got a few of my technology-oriented friends on riot, but I'm waiting until they change their name to try to get my whole friendgroup to switch so as to not confuse my non technology-oriented friends.
