Okay, about this Telegram thing
Telegram is an interesting sort of messaging platform. I use it for communication in the Ubuntu development community that I still have some vestigial contact with. As the way the budget turns on Capitol Hill, my contact may be increased soon as I may also be under the axe in terms of continued employment along with many colleagues. I am still working on my "digital libraries" project performing an external evaluation of Outernet and may be able to issue a report later this year. A massive RIF/outright mass termination may give me quite a bit of time to write, it seems.
For those wanting to brave contact via Telegram, my user name there is simple. Just look for
@smkellat and proceed from there. I will say the encrypted calls sound slightly better than the regular calls on the regular wireless network as of late. Handing off between devices and computer make it even more useful, too.
