Open Source

Matrix is decentralised and open source. That means you can set up your own server so you have complete control of your identity and data. Even if you have an account on a different server, you can still join our open chat rooms and take part. We also run an IRC server for anyone that prefers that. We're opening to trying out any new ways to communicate, as long as it's open source and prioritises privacy.

This is a great introduction for the geeks
