Kontalk around the web


#1

Hi everyone,

I thought it would be a good idea to have a place to share references to Kontalk that appear around the internet. These could very well be articles, videos, podcasts, lists, discussions etc.

So please leave a comment with a link below when you come across mentions of Kontalk! :slight_smile:

I’ve been collecting them for a while now. :slight_smile:

Oh neat, completely missed that. :blush:

The downside though of keeping them on github as a list is that it doesn’t allow for any discussions and comments to emerge as a response to them.


#5

Well, they span a few years so I don’t even know if some of those links are still valid. Shall I check them and post the valid ones here?


#6

Nah, I think we can continue with posting new mentions here. We can of course keep that list updated in parallel.

This came up a couple of days ago, I already left a response:

And another one Reddit’s privacy subreddit today, again comparing to Signal:

What’s interesting is that the OP seems not to be aware they can host their own kontalk server.


#12

That’s one of the points I’d like to raise in the new website. I’ve spent a lot of time building our super-easy Docker environment just for that :slight_smile:


#13

It seems that discussion is generated.

Came across this interesting comparison of messenger applications today. There are a few articles and talks referenced there also from the same person:

Btw, I will be giving a talk at TDOSE in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) in 10 days, discussing messenger applications and why being FOSS is only a first step. If anyone is around the area and would like to meet, drop me a note!


#15

Will your talk be available in the internet?
No matter if it’s a video or a text.


#16

I think it will be recorded. I can share the slides and video once they are available.

Update: The slides and video for my talk are now available. Kontalk is mentioned at 25’18".

This came up on twitter today; an article in Turkish titled “5 most secure messaging applications against spyware” (automated translation) mentioning Kontalk:
