Hi all!

If you are already using Telegram, please join the House4Hack chat group here:

https://telegram.me/joinchat/AJbMmAN6DERQbC7nOlOT6g

If you don't already have Telegram installed, you can install it from https://telegram.org/apps.

Why Telegram and not WhatsApp?

- Open source client (available on F-Droid)
- Bot API means we can create a bot to open/close door/post pics, like Tom did for the BinarySpace group
- Secret chats (end-to-end encrypted, with ability to delete messages/images from remote device)
- Web interface that doesn't rely on the phone app running
- More secure than WhatsApp, not owned by Facebook
- more here: https://telegram.org/faq#q-how-is-telegram-different-from-whatsapp

See you on the group!
Toby.

And to bluntly repeat what this is all about:


If you are already using Telegram, please join the House4Hack chat group here:

If you don't already have Telegram installed, you can install it from https://telegram.org/apps.

Philip adds the following objectives as informally being "why I should care?" about the House4Hack Telegram group:

We discuss relevant modern groundbreaking tech and keep the MakerSpace spirit, open source hardware, open source software, collaborative intelligence and innovative ideas alive.

And we keep it fun, like depiction of a grounded circuit:





Or share some of your ideas or projects:




Great community, join in the fun!
