@sir signal is hilarious in that it is a centralized system with all the problems of a decentralized system.
Take groups for example. Theres no comsensus as to who is in a group. They are basically maintained as account local mailing lists. I cannot count how many times this has broken when an old client rejoins the network.
Furthermore, no consent is needed to throw someone into a group. Youd think an anarchist wouldnt make that mistake but lol whatever. Stickerpacks!!!!!!!
@sir this was painful to read about.
> one has to consider that its successor HTTP/2.0
you mean Google's protocol SPDY that was for some reason renamed HTTP despite being completely incompatible and functioning entirely differently and was also made for in-house use by a megacorp and fails to have things like an upgrade mechanism (like HTTP 1.0/1.1 has, and in fact http2 uses to activate itself) which was then botched by browsers wanting to mandate TLS which further complicates debugging on top of all that. 🆗
@sir I would like this "nomadic identities" thing here in Mastodon, specially if it could announce migrations to your followers.
@sir imagine calling ur messaging secure and requiring a phone number to register.
