So Wire has been bought by a shady company, Snips by Sonos.. the good thing is that these tech are open source. Any one heard about people starting to fork these softwares? :)

@imacrea I don't think the issue is software-related (also maintaining a secure messaging is no easy task), but hosting/infrastructure-related: Wire isn't decentralized, meaning one entity need to host a set of services to ensure people can connect to each other (even if the content of communications *is* encrypted).

This is expensive, and cannot be solved via a fork only as far as I can tell.

@eliotberriot You’re right, I forgot about that.. they said they would add federation, but now it’s been sold.. better switching directly to Matrix
