Instant Messaging

Tox – Decentralised IM and group chat (torrent-like DHT protocol)

Matrix – Decentralised group chat, WebRTC signalling

How to Prepare

Have a phone, tablet, or laptop to use to access the services (preferably all 3).

If you are a sysadmin have a laptop to access servers and install software.

Test out some relevant software in advance if you have time. Ideally be ready to spend a few minutes talking about the software.
