I was just thinking: the only way to make a messaging system truly private is for the messages to disappear/be deleted as soon as you read them
Bittorrent had something like this with an app called Bleep. Peer to peer, no central server, and messages could have timer or simply dissappear after being read. Was a very interesting program and technology which they appeared to have abandoned. I think the way notifications and dns routing works it was just too difficult to make it appealing to the average user. Real shame.
@Phaserune sounds interesting.
@hugo isn't that what telegram, wire and signal went with?
@eloisa well, they key a record of the full conversation exchange in your phone at least. So, if someone gains access to your phone the conversation is not private.
@hugo Missão Impossível : esta mensagem vai-se autodestruir em 10 segundos. good luck, Jim.
