Open Psychology Chat

I have been trying to keep things up to date with our members through using UberConference.  Previously for a brief period we were also using Huzza.  Both of these systems work well when looking at having contact on a scheduled basis provided that the people involved show up.  I recently was finding that getting myself into the UberConference has been a bit of an issue.

I have for myself been using the Matrix network (it’s a distributed chat network).  While I may not actually be reading stuff on a “all the time” basis, it does provide basic chat in a way that works well for allowing people leave and receive messages even when people are not on at the same time.

There are features for both audio and video conference calls, which I haven’t tested all that fully.  About a week ago I created a server for OpenPsychology running on matrix.openpsychology.net (it is (or was) federated as openpsychology.net).  I had most of the stuff working, and was about to update to the latest version, and found I couldn’t do that, so am in the process of setting things up from scratch, which should be (as of the time I am writing this) within about 3 hours.

As for a client I suggest (and use it myself) to use Riot, either Riot Web or one of the other versions.  If you want to look at other possible clients Matrix has a list of a good many of the ones, and what the status as far as they know of it.  If you have any issues, please feel free to contact me.

    Basics are currently setup. There are some issues I know about, specifically around encryption, but I’m not sure those are actually new.

    I will really appreciate any feedback on how to set things up a bit better.
