The way we’ve been approaching P2P is the “hamfisted but genius” approach of taking homeservers and running them on the client, alongside or within your Matrix client ...
Now that sounds a bit like integrating a hammer into a screw driver ... because someone realized too late, that they weren't actually in need of a screw driver but a hammer.

Well, but at least we're seeing more p2p/distributed messaging ... which is good. I think mobile devices have become powerful enough years ago, to enable true p2p if it's designed wisely and not in a way that wastes ressources (bandwidth/cpu/mem/storage) like unfortunately many contemporary pieces of software do.

But as always ... news like this make me wonder why not much more dev power goes into projects like #briar #tox #qTox or #jami.
 
#Briar hab ich jetzt seit 1-2 Jahren, fand die Idee gut, Kontakte habe ich keine, genutzt hab ich es auch noch nicht, weil keine Kontakte. #Briar

Briar-Messenger im Fediverse


Der Messenger #Briar ist nun unter @briar mit einem eigenen Account im Fediverse vertreten.
 
Didn't use #Briar in a year, seems you can now add contacts without meeting them. Anyone using Briar?
 
El uso de Apps de Mensajeria en Mesh ha aumentado 3685%

#Briar y #Maniverse son dos apps que no necesitan de #internet para funcionar, en cambio aprovechan las cualidades de #Bluetooth.

Al parecer, los "estudiantes" han descubierto sus cualidades y sus ventajas: No necesitan de internet y son #P2P, es decir, no pueden ser censurados.

En lo personal lo ocupo con mi familia, pero para ser muy franco, me parece muy extraño que tanta gente de forma casi "misteriosa" los hallan descubierto y los esten usando de forma tan masiva.

Para gente mas o menos normal, acostumbrada a las "comodidades", que nos presta la internet y sus apps, me cuesta creer que se pasar... Show more...
 

Zusammenfassung Session-Messenger vs Briar-Messenger


Session
Vor einer Woche poppten einige Threads zum Session-Messenger auf, unter anderem hier von mir mit Reply von @blingbling, der auf einen Talk von Let's play Infokrieg Arne Vogelsang auf dem 36C3 hingewiesen hat.
Darin enthalten so ab Minute 27 unter anderem ein Hinweis auf Lokinet und den Bezug auf die alt-right-Szene.

@Passagier 451 I launched my own Nextcloud server over a year ago because of these type issues. It's not that hard, and it can be done on a very tight budget.

P.S. the #Briar messaging app is really kick-ass if people are serious about messaging in private.

♲ mray (mray@social.tchncs.de):
If you know about #OMEMO #Briar #Ring and #Tox you should have a look at #autocrypt

Not only because it is making #PGP "usable", but because #DeltaChat builds on top of it and turns the broadest network possible (YES E-MAIL !!!) into your favorite chat application.

Very promising.

#Briar is an unusual kind of messenger for Android devices: there are no servers, messages are stored on your phone and sent directly to your contact's phone through TOR, wi-fi or bluetooth.

It's designed for journalists, activists, people working in disaster zones and anyone interested in "off the grid" communication.

The official site is here:

There was a lot of interest in the post about the #ScuttleButt social network, so I should also mention a messaging app called #Briar that works in a similar way:

https://briarproject.org/

It doesn’t use servers, your data is stored on your phone and it can work without an internet connection:

"Briar is a messaging app


designed for activists, journalists, and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate. Unlike traditional messaging apps, Briar doesn't rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly between the users' devices. If the internet's down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis. If the internet's up, Briar can sync via the Tor network, protecting users and their relationships from surveillance."

Assuming one's phone is secure (data and voice cannot be collected before Briar encrypts them), this app could be help users who want privacy. Does anyone here have experience using this? h/t to @rosenfeld@diasp.org
