Hi Everyone! This is just to let you know that you can be notified of activity on the OpenPlanetary Forum through Matrix.
If you aren’t familiar with Matrix (https://matrix.org/), it is an open-source secure messaging protocol. You can access Matrix through several clients, of which the most popular is Element (https://element.io/). The Matrix clients are similar to Slack, in that you can chat one-on-one, in groups, and create Spaces that contain multiple channels. You can even use Matrix for videoconferencing and accessing your channels on Slack.
The easiest way to access the forum notifications is to
- Create an account on Element (https://element.io/).
- Click on this link in your browser https://matrix.to/#/#openplanetary:matrix.org and join those spaces and rooms that interest you.
Alternatively, just send me a message at @mark-wieczorek:matrix.org asking to join and I’ll send you an invitation.
Matrix really is the future of messaging, and I only note that Gitter.im is now Matrix native, Rocket.chat is in the process of migrating to Matrix, and both the French and German governments use Matrix for secure communication. If you have any ideas on how to better integrate Matrix into OpenPlanetary, please let us know!
(and thanks to Chiara Marmo who helped to set this up!)
