Better get that meetup platform ecosystem going soon...

@mayel @raucao @mobilizon it's really a shame... Meetup's done a lot for getting me out over the years, but we live in that capitalist society where every idea needs to be monetized and $$ profitability trumps social value.

@Râu Cao @Mayel There's a nice little confederacy of ActivityPub systems that support events. Friendica, Hubzilla, and Zap for sure. There may be others I'm not yet aware of. I never used Meetup so I don't know what unique features it has, but presumably these can be added to any open source event system.

@spider @mayel You can't just add something to a complex existing system and expect users to switch. The system needs to be focused entirely on organizing meetups, conferences, and other social events.
