I'm kinda irked that nobody gives credit to calagator.org/ for having been an open source alternative to Meetup for more than a decade already


@tomasino The flagship instance is just Portland but it's intended for other places to put up their own instances.

@jamey well that is indeed very cool. looks like someone else already had the idea to set one up for Reykjavik -- startupiceland.com/2013/10/15/

@jamey @tomasino There's also https://radar.squat.net/en which is global and FOSS. Federation is/will be a game changer though.

Are there any other instances? I expect being the second instance is much more effort than being the tenth instance. Number two is where you find out the issues
