I just want to know how the fuck did you come to this conclusion.

Jitsi, the open-source video conferencing platform, now requires a Google, Microsoft, or Facebook account for their online service. - Beehaw (beehaw.org)

While Jitsi is open-source, most people use the platform they provide, meet.jit.si [http://meet.jit.si], for immediate conference calls. They have now introduced a “Know Your Customer” policy and require at least one of the attendees to log in with a Facebook, Github (Microsoft), or Google account. If you prefer not to...

What did happen with OpenID, anyway? I remember it being big when Livejournal was a thing.

While this is the case for me personally, a lot of folks just pull out their cellphones to do the work they need. I feel like we're the minority with this opinion.

My doctor's office exclusively uses Zoom. I wonder how this will bump up against HIPAA?

OC Little bit of family joy to share

My sibling is transitioning mtf and just started hormone therapy. She has also always been a huge fan of IPAs and has been super into sharing her love of them with us (to little success).
