@pea I think the spec criticism is a really good point. E.g I realy want to contribute to a Rust implementation of the matrix protocol - but there's so much stuff in flux with the specification that the project is stalled waiting for clarification. Matrix have said that they'll be releasing v1 of the spec in August so hopefully that clears things up a bit.
I'm not sure why everyone just uses matrix.org though, I run a little matrix server on a digitalocean droplet and it's very straightforward.
@pea That's fair. In that case it's probably worth just letting people run their own matrix servers as the IRC would be the canonical chat thing anyway?
I'm intrigued as to what you dislike about matrix BTW? Cautious of starting an internet argument though so just gonna be overly careful here and state that I really am curious, not looking for an excuse to rant or anything.
@pea considered running a matrix server rather than IRC? 🙂

At some point I'll put some content up that isn't years old.
Just bought and read Domain Modeling Made Functional by Scott Wlaschine. Found it extremely helpful in laying out some best practices in event based systems. Recommended. https://pragprog.com/book/swdddf/domain-modeling-made-functional
“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”
Very surprised by the maturity and polish of the Mastodon ecosystem. Using https://tuskyapp.github.io on Android and everything just works.
Programming and open-source, social justice, dinner.
