Over the past few years[^1] there has been a renewed interest in 'alternative' on-line services such as social media and chat. These are services that promise to provide different experiences and models to the ones we are used to seemingly for free from corporations like Google, Facebook and Apple.

Some of these alternatives are that in name only. These alternatives promise to be something else from the start, but often end up being more of the same since they use similar or identical business models as the platform they pretend to be an alternative to. In essence a different brand serving the same product.

Daniel Gultsch is the developer behind [Conversations](https://conversations.im), an open source instant messaging application for Android. In 2014, he decided to work full time on Conversations and try to <!-- PELICAN_END_SUMMARY --> make a living from it. Rather than starting from scratch with Conversations, he built it as a client for the existing federated messaging protocol XMPP.
Since an XMPP messenger can, in a way, only be as good as the entire ecosystem, Daniels work on Conversations also meant work on expanding and improving that larger XMPP ecosystem. This work includes helping to draft and implement protocol standards, such as OMEMO, a modern and user-friendly end-to-end encryption based on Signal's protocol. He also contributed code to other XMPP servers and clients in the ecosystem to bring them up to speed with modern uses. Additionally, [through his critical essays](https://gultsch.de/xmpp_2016.html) he is a vocal defender of XMPP and open standards in general.
