Moments ago, my twitter account was locked because of a very casual reply to a controversial post. However, that's my guess. Who knows the real reason? They didn't tell me anything.

Ironically, that reminds me of Chinese social websites, who always overlook users' right to know, right to appeal and right to be a living human (rather than a piece of digital asset). Moreover, twitter and platforms like instagram and facebook are becoming more and more isolated and closed. Remember the times when we can browse tweets freely inside IE, even no need to be logged in? They all are degenerating towards an Orwellian end👍

We are happy to announce a new QOTO service, our brand new matrix server!

Registration is open to everyone.

To either login or register a new account use any compatible Matrix/Riot client (like app.element.io/ ). When doing so you will have to set the home server to “matrix.qoto.org” (it is usually set to matrix.org). However keep in mind once logged in your username will be @user:qoto.org, as the matrix.* prefix is dropped. Similarly any rooms you create will be :qoto.org.

The best part is this service is decentralized and federated so you can join any matrix room on any other server. Even cooler you can join rooms on servers that arent federated at all like IRC or gitter.im. So you really can connect to almost any chat server out there all from one identity and server.

NOTE: We will also be bringing up a client, likely the same client run at app.element.io, for the added security. It wont change anything and you can switch clients once we have that up if you want. You can also download the client and use it as a desktop app.

I felt like I've been writing my PhD thesis ever since the world begins. It's like another life, from which I reborn, luckily I didn't fail. Now the problem is how to recover from the stress, I LOST the ability to entertain myself😢

当青春的声音……

当青春的声音愈大,
世界就愈洁净。
在青春的声音下,
许多的不正义会感到羞耻。
