@jeroenpraat @npettiaux For jitsi in particular, I see the chances for it (and other open source solutions) to be taken into discussion in companies and corporations by developers and sysadmins who care about this. They are the people who can enable others to use such a product.
This is and will be no easy task, i.e. Jitsi will not always be able to compete with zoom in this case.

@jeroenpraat @npettiaux No need to be sorry, I think that you are correct on this part!

To speak more generally, the whole UX part on open source software does seems to be weaker than with commercial software (including commercial baked open source software) of big companies - which in itself is a big problem to get other people than tech savvy ones to use such products.

This definitely is a question which needs to be answered in the long run.

@jasper Never heard of it before, so I could not give you an good answer on that one, but it looks like Tox is more an alternative to WhatsApp, Telegram etc.

I think if you want an alternative to zoom for corporate communication jitsi would be the one alternative which comes close to many, but not all features.

Disclaimer: Of course it is always hard to have one absolute answer to everything, in most cases it has to be evaluated per individual.

Well it seems that zoom fixed their iOS app - good!


“Zoom takes its users’ privacy extremely seriously. [...] we were recently made aware that the Facebook SDK was collecting unnecessary device data” - but reading this, stay alerted about them. You should know your tools, especially if you use tools from advertisement companies like Facebook!

@puresick Yes indeed, this is well said. There are a lot of things in Linux that marvels me, just because they're achieved through the power of the community. It means slighly less to me if these things are already standards on other platforms.

@andrea maybe another term for “psychological advertisement”?

Woah, Gnome supports showing me the battery level of my Logitech MX Master 3 Mouse.


I guess these little features are things only linux user are happy about and for macos and windows user, it is just normal :D


@npettiaux what features are you missing in Jitsi that zoom has?

Do not use zoom:


And to all developers out there:
Stop using facebook sdk and other stupid stuff. Take care of your users!

Just updated my blog post on Apple killing Offline Web Apps with questions after they silently updated their blog post (thanks for the heads up @xerz).

I’m now confused and wondering if they thought this out at all.

I’ve also added a link to @soapdog’s blog post on the same subject.

The last few weeks I am listening to digital radio streams.

There is something nostalgic and personal about this. I am not sure how to describe it more accurately.

@laura I am using feedbin, which offers not only subscribing to rss/atmo feeds, but also to newsletters, youtube channels and twitter accounts.

Just read on reddit:

“Technically, nothing is NSFW because everyone is currently at home”


Do you need all images from an HTML page?

Just use `document.images` in JavaScript, which returns an Array with every image in the current HTML document.
