The @GetTogetherComm project is making an open source federated alternative to MeetUp.com.
You can already use their first instance (https://gettogether.community) but they need help with building the federation side of things, so that instances can link together and with the rest of the Fediverse.
If you're a coder and interested in helping, you may want to take a look at this post:

I've been dipping my toes in #ArchLinux on a VM over the last few days. It so reminds me of way-back-when, when a #Gentoo reinstall meant bootstrapping a compiler to build the base system and then build from there. I ran an entire hosting business on Gentoo back then, and really loved the stability and simplicity of my systems. Since, I've been running mostly Debian-esque OS'es (currently Pop!_OS on my laptops). Maybe I'll give Arch a proper test-run on a spare laptop and see how it goes.
#Budapest is a little chilly today but still rather pretty.
Companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google are extremely high-value targets for cyber criminals. We need to begin to support #decentralization to minimize the effects of data breaches like this one.
I've set up a basic gettogether page for #Cryptohagen https://gettogether.community/events/242/cryptohagen/
