Re: OpenChain Zoom room tested - complete success

LibrePlanet used jitsi this year when they had to go 100% virtual in the space of about a week
I presented using it and seemed to work pretty well
Might be worth a try; it’s definitely free as in beer and speech as FSF is very particular about that for their events (I had to use a Linux system for my preso as they don’t allow A***e or W*****s systems to run persos at their events

Shane and others,
Thanks for all your hard work on setting up Zoom. However, I'm a bit concerned given all the negative privacy and security press about Zoom this last week.

I just learned that there is an open source alternative called jitsi. Specifically, I saw it on one of the security blogs I follow.

I just learned about it so don't have any specific experience with jitsi but perhaps it's worth investigating particularly given it's open source (Apache-2.0)?

Anyone used it before or have thoughts?

I am sorry that I could not have joined you on Zoom conference due to unexpected matter to attend to.
Zoom seems very nice to use and it’s use is explosively being expanded.
I also hope we could be connected with each other more easily and often thanks to this service.

We connected China, Japan, Germany and Switzerland with video, no issues detected. Check out our discussion here:

What is coming next?

(1) guidance will be provided to help all our international groups use the room at any time

(2) we will transition our online meetings to this service moving forward

(3) our new video capabilities allow us to connect 100 people with video, screen sharing and recording...leading to the ability to host webinars for our community
