BIDP and Riot Instant Messaging

We are developing some additional contacts for executive secretary and shop. To connect, you will need internet and Riot.

Riot does messaging, voice/video calls and conference calls. It is free and open source software. It works simultanously on phone and desktop/laptop, allowing big screen and keyboard. You can set up your own addresses or rooms using Riot to connect with your family or work people, and access the many interest group pages that exist.

To use Riot, kindly take your browser to Riot.im, install riot instant messaging on phone (22Mb for Android) or other device (ie laptop) that has camera and sound and internet access, then create an account giving user name (Use only a-z 0-9 . and _), password and your email address. When done, they will send you an email asking you to click to confirm your account (if email is not seen in seconds, check your spam folder). Then open Riot again, give them a passphrase (ie 'mycatisblack', record the key in a text file in your home directory (ie drop it in notepad, save in home folder like 'riot-key.txt') note your account info near top left and connect to our public pages.
