I've been building a Facebook Events style event organizing system for the Fediverse. It's based on the simple, open source, privacy-respecting event organizing tool https://gath.io
The attached video is a work-in-progress preview and shows compatibility with Mastodon. My hope is to get it working with lots of software, including stuff like Friendica that supports events and calendars.

@darius Have you heard of Mobilizon which aims to do the same?
I'm surprised you say it wants to be a business, aren't you confusing Framasoft with something else?
@vanecx Okay, I was going off of what I saw before they finished fundraising! The fact that they were trying to raise 50k EUR for the project seemed either (1) excessive or (2) like they are building something far more heavy than what I want.
Anyway, I'm glad that there is a test server up, I'll have to check it out.
@vanecx Ah, I set up a test event and I already disagree with their federation model! They are creating permanent human-tied users on each Mobilizon instance that own or attend events, whereas my vision creates actors for each new event and people can RSVP from their pre-existing fediverse accounts.
That is to say: we are doing very different things federation-wise!
also I'm working on a project to help enable that future. Taking the #ActvityPub implentation from @GuppeGroups (based on your NodeJS reference imp.) and converting it to a modular library of express middleware and utils.
Still very early stage, but making progress
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
