The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting online, on Tuesday, June 8th, at 7:30pm:

    Introduction to PeerTube:
    A Free and Decentralized Video Hosting Platform

    The internet continues to trend towards large, corporate owned
    websites and platforms. No one can deny that large platforms are
    amazing and convenient! But due to their sheer scale, social
    networks have difficulty with moderation and preventing abuse.
    Rules that work well for one set of users might be unacceptable to
    others, and automated moderation tools perform poorly outside of
    the culture and language they were developed in.

    These concerns have encouraged a wave of federated, decentralized
    social networks, loosely labeled the "fediverse." Similar to how
    email servers work today, any admin can run an instance of a
    social network, which then associates with other servers to share
    content and hosting costs. PeerTube is the most popular federated
    video hosting platform in this space, with an active community and
    many instances.

    Join us this month, as Chris Audet explores a possible future
    direction for video driven social networks. Chris will discuss why
    you might want to host a PeerTube instance, the cool underlying
    tech, and the role of alternative social networks in a world
    dominated by giants.
