That Discovery-fied Enterprise bridge is sexy af! Good homage to the original.
Skype is owned by Microsoft and all its calls pass through MS servers. No one knows what MS does with the data it gathers.
Jami is a free open alternative with no servers at all, calls connect directly between users. It's very easy to use, and a good privacy-friendly replacement for Skype.
Their website is at:

I wish to gather a loose-knit writing collective of academics, tech-folks, & other professionals interested in the intersection of education & technology [particularly the use of open-source or decentralized techs]. Maybe focusing on a group blog where issues can be raised in detail, initiatives documented, & resources shared. No professional affiliations needed; just abiding interest. If this sounds interesting, holler at me.

Teacher shit Show more
The worst problem with doing any after-school program is that one kid who's parents swear they've been on their way for the last 45 minutes, and the activity ended an hour ago. I could drive 4 towns over in 45 minutes, where the fuck you been? I mean if it was once I'd believe it but every week?
It’s like they finally spaced Roddenberry‘s ghost. It’s certainly a new kind of Trek. Not sure I like it... maybe it’ll grow on me.
Allowing a fight between two members of Starfleet... Do you think Saru made the right call? #StarTrekDiscovery
