Matrix

An open network for secure, decentralized communication. Put simply, it's a chat room but you can access them from mobile apps, or over the web.

We run an open server at https://matrix.glasgow.social

You can connect by creating an account at the above URL, or by installing one of the many mobile clients. Enter your homeserver as glasgow.social when prompted (if you want to be able to browse the local rooms).

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.

You can learn more about the project at https://matrix.org/

This is a great introduction for the geeks https://brendan.abolivier.bzh/enter-the-matrix/
