When aliens landed
We said: "Save us"
And: "You are fake"
And: "We are busy"
And: "Leave us alone"
And: "Die"

The aliens listened
And said: "No"
And did nothing
Except watch us

And our anger
Did nothing
Our shame, our fear, our hate
To them

How alien they are, aliens

Oh, sure. Email has a level of adoption where nothing else comes close!

@Strit @ericbuijs Since I work in public service, the contracts specify the phone provider as a trusted channel in a GDPR sense. In that respect, Signal has a different status.

@ericbuijs Thank you. Hmmm. Probably not going to be popular in my organisation...

@raucao For subscription, right. I would have thought that would be a selling point! They have been a bit quiet on that. But I guess you do not want to send the eyeballs elsewhere...

Folks building “sell your own data” platforms are not your friends. Ask them how they make money.

Hint: they take a cut.

They’re basically digital pimps.

@raucao calendars and contacts are such a mess.

As someone who has limited knowledge:
Am I correct in assuming that if is set as default SMS/MMS app, it will send a message encrypted to those who are registered as using Signal and as a regular text to others?
If it goes through Signal, it will go through a Signal server as a message, and not as a text message?

Is the focus files or communications? I think Nextcloud would let you be updated when a file was shared or updated?
