Is anyone doing a #federated #OpenSource alternative to

It's useful for local events, but very expensive for organisers ($15 a month for a basic events page). People pay purely because others use it, an open alternative would be 👍

Meetup's "network effect" might be overcome because it isn't a global network (e.g. someone in London is only going to care about meetups in London).

Also, an open alternative would be perfect fit for #federation, each community having its own instance.

@switchingsocial The Contributopia project, launched by Framasoft (which also launches support campaigns for Peertube), proposes exactly the same in its roadmap


Thank you for the info! Is there any timescale for the roadmap, when this might happen?

@switchingsocial Contributopia is basically an invitation to build new tools together. I don't know what has been done yet.
