Is anyone doing a 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 , each community having its own instance.

@switchingsocial The Contributopia project, launched by Framasoft (which also launches support campaigns for Peertube), proposes exactly the same in its roadmap contributopia.org/en/services/

Thank you for the info! Is there any timescale for the roadmap, when this might happen?

@switchingsocial Contributopia is basically an invitation to build new tools together. I don't know what has been done yet.
