It makes me sad to see that conferences of folks I once considered "my community", like, are only using proprietary centralised social media (from what I can see) and eschew distributed open media. I wonder what video conferencing system they'll use, and what back channels. I'm hopeful they'll use #FOSS technologies for that, but seems like a long shot. Most "open" communities seem too harried to actually us open tools. Which strikes lots of sour notes.

@lightweight Maybe an easy starting point might be to get FOSS conference organizers to put videos up on PeerTube. I know that ConfTube was serving that purpose for a long time.

@sean @lightweight This is exactly what Debian did. They also donated a lot of money to PeerTube so they could livestream their conferences on their own instance.
