Hi FLOSS advocates and supporters
This is probably the last call for #PeerTube crowdfunding because time is short (only 3 days left atm)
With more than 850 contributors, it has been a huge success and 1st goal has been achieved rather quickly.
Thanks for that !
Now if you believe this project may have a highest potential with more development, please pass the word and contribute, either with money or with code. Remember it is free software and of public interest 🙂

Congrats @Chocobozzz and the whole @Framasoft team on reaching their funding goal for #peertube. There is still 12 days left to reach some stretch goals, but this is already an incredible achievement. #federation #p2p #video https://www.kisskissbankbank.com/en/projects/peertube-a-free-and-federated-video-platform

Founded on #4opens and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its a safe space for Campaigning and NGO groups to access their members via #openweb projects.
"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.
We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.
This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.
Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.
We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.
A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.
