  • Start Your Own Matrix Room And Discord Bridge

    While hosting is better in the long run, if you want to try out Matrix and a Discord bridge it's much easier to just use existing public services and then decide later down the line whether this service is going to be worth your time and effort to host privately.

  • FLOSS Weekly 610: Internet of People and Things - Picos and the Self-Sovereign Internet

    Picos and the self-sovereign internet.

    Phil Windley co-invented Picos (persistent compute objects) and discusses how they could make everything on Earth, including people, "smart" even without onboard electronics.
