Very late to the party, but finally discovered the power of XMPP today after talking with folks at LibrePlanet. Set up a server on my domain and just moved all my scripted alerts away from email. Thinking about moving my primary phone number to xmpp-based https://jmp.chat/ for a few bucks a month too.
@maiki Denver Gingerich had a table there promoting JPM.chat, he's the creator. I was interested because I jump between the US and Japan, and would love to keep my US phone number available without being tied to a US service provider.
Anyway, the discussion was really just around the table, wish I remembered more names! Denver also gave a talk about making sustainable free software businesses, but it was not specific to JMP.chat.
@ando Well, there's an endorsement to show up at this things, ne? Thanks for the info. ^_^
