Bryan Quigley: Wrong About Signal

A couple years ago I was a part of a discussion about encrypted messaging. I was in the Signal camp - we needed it to be quick and easy to setup for users to get setup. Using existing phone numbers makes it easy. Others were in the Matrix camp - we need to start from scratch and make it distributed so no one organization is in control. We should...

Ubuntu Blog: A blast from the past – Shutter

The wheel of software turns, and apps come and go. But the end of development does not always mean the end of usefulness.
