We have just provided a progress report for the first week of #Glimpse project!

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.
I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
upcoming ICE raid, how to help immigrants
The ICE raid (that was delayed due to Trump announcing it on Twitter) is on again: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/11/us/politics/ice-families-deport.html
It specifically targets recent immigrants in major cities who have already been ordered to leave, but will also pick up other undocumented immigrants who happen to be with them.
