Revision as of 13:07, 29 January 2016

Let's discuss and test out various Libre alternatives to Slack, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Agenda

Let's start by spending half an hour discussing the problems and ways of solving them, during the discussion people are encouraged to play with software on their devices and do web research.

By the time the Linux Australia AGM starts I would like people to be working on installing and testing various software. People who are there just for the discussion can then attend the AGM. I believe that coding is more important than voting as the people standing for office are all good.

Topics to consider

This list is broad and we will probably run out of time but perhaps we will have some shared chatroom or group post tag to continue the BoF online.

  • Learning about being a user of libre IM and federated social networking, looking at the feature sets - those not interested in running their own instances or IM servers can create accounts.
  • Who to follow on these alternative social networks?
  • Connecting/extending networks - bridging with plugins/bots, or working with common protocols?
  • How to contribute? Which projects are looking for what help
  • Moving between networks

Public instances people can register accounts at:

Or use http://pump.io/try.html to have one randomly select for you.

Instant Messaging | Group Chat

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

Matrix – Decentralised group chat, WebRTC signalling

Mattermost - Slack-compatible alternative

Rocket.Chat - Web chat platform

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.

If you want a virtual machine to test software contact Russell Coker <russell@coker.com.au> ASAP. Ideally send a GPG signed message with your ssh public key.
