After the recent change of the terms of service to Zoom, Software Freedom Conservancy seeks to bring light to corporate abuse of power and focus on making FOSS solutions to these proprietary requirements.
@conservancy I've got family, friends, colleagues, clients drop Jitsi and BigBlueButton because they were too unreliable. Even people who are connected with the F/LOSS movement. For BBB, there's no native Android client for example! https://github.com/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton/issues/15908
Also initiatives like https://www.meet.coop/ tried to be sustainable and failed. Are we willing to put our money where our mouth is?
Calling to "exit zoom" without acknowledging usability, reliability, and sustainability issues is bad.
@conservancy It's sad to hear how Zoom is manipulating user data. Zoom is an essential tool for learning in my country, where many children have been forced to abandon their studies due to the ongoing civil war. My daughter has been using Zoom everyday for her online classes since she was in grade 1, and she is now in grade 3. I think Zoom should take immediate steps to address these concerns so that children like my daughter can learn without fear of their privacy being violated.
