Anyone found a good #FOSS alternative to Facebook events? It's the only thing I maintain a Facebook account for these days.
It would need to integrate with existing networks to help populate contacts and publish invitesm but actual RSVPing should probably not require an account.
I have found things like Attendize, but anything focused on "ticketing" is going to feel like overkill for inviting people to a birthday party or a backyard BBQ.
Is there a way to do some sort of provable deployment of #backend code?
Intuitively this sounds impossible, but maybe I am just not being creative enough. The best I can come up with is having a hosting provider that it can produce proof of what has been deployed to it. This moves trust up a level

Today I realized that I cannot expect people on the Internet to have heard of the Geek Social Fallacies any more.
The Geek Social Fallacies are five things that geeks often believe about How Socializing Should Work, that cause a lot of conflict. I've found them to be pretty useful as a way to put a handle on certain concepts, and maybe even avoid going into bad situations.
(Looking at them in 2017, I find myself wondering how many of the GSFs the design of most social networks is running straight into...)
Been interesting to see the resurgence of browser based games with the wave of .io games. Multiplayer + no install is pretty huge.
