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

@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.

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?

@nortix @schlink @[email protected] Agreed. I just put in a fresh Baïkal install a little while back. It does not have a calendar interface, but you can pull it in with a lot of apps.
