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

@tigertex

Yeah, apps do seem to be important. For some people if there's no app the site doesn't exist.
