Is anyone doing a #federated #OpenSource alternative to Meetup.com?
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 I haven't announced anything but that was my plan for the AP app i'm currently writing
@switchingsocial @balrogboogie This is directly relevant to my desire to find local early musicians.
@balrogboogie @switchingsocial WANT
@tigertex @switchingsocial I mean if you want something right now this actually exists: https://dev.glitch.social/@cassolotl/100123239584982616
@balrogboogie @switchingsocial yeah but using it in app form is major key
