In the spirit of Tino Sehgal, who not only refuses to travel by plane himself, but also insists that the performers of his work don’t travel by plane, I am responding to people who want to Skpe(tm) me by asking them to talk over Jitsi.
This is achieved in the following steps:
- Download Jitsi https://jitsi.org/
- Get an XMPP account – there’s a list here: https://xmpp.net/directory.php or just plump for http://jabber.hot-chilli.net/ which is good for English speakers 😉 (lots are German). You can even use GoogleTalk, but let’s not eh?
- Add this newly created account to Jitsi. File > Add new account, Select network > XMPP, full jabber id which should look like an id address e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org
- Make Jitsi more secure following instructions here https://securityinabox.org/en/jitsi_account#2.4
