> video conferencing is just compensating for managements insecurity

I would have agreed with you until recently, when I started collaborating on a creative project with a non-technical friend. He was really in favor of occasional video conferencing, so we've been doing that, and it really has added an important dimension to our work.

I prefer to self-host whenever possible, so while we conduct much of our communication via a Mattermost instance, I would really like to ditch Google Hangouts for something I can host myself too, and works well on Linux (me) and Mac (him).

We have Slack at work. I recently set up a Mattermost instance for a personal project. Very much a work-alike - and of course can be self-hosted.

Though I didn't use it, Mattermost has an "omnibus" install that encapsulates pretty much everything requires to run it - web server, database server, etc.

I would say that the US doing something as fucking crazy as engaging in a publicly announced "cyber"-attack against Russia qualifies as evidence. I am fairly certain the US does not want to get into a "cyber"-war with Russia. It feels compelled to respond.
