Mobilizon ('mobilize on')

Mobilizon might be one of the most interesting projects I’ve seen coming out of the Framasoft group, a pretty well known privacy/rights software collective in France. It’s directly aimed at undermining Facebook as a community management platform; i.e. it’s meant to provide a much better alternative to FB’s Group’s and Events features. To me this is hugely important for situations like climate activism and other resistance type movements, for example, for which various groups (all of them) set up on FB, but which then excludes people like me who knows better than to use FB, and allows ‘opponents’ (trolls, denialists, etc) and law enforcement to monitor and sabotage efforts, not to mention the usual surveillance capitalism shit FB relies on.

So Mobilizon, a federated system, is a nice-looking alternative. The campaign launched five days ago, with another 55 days to go, and it’s already 66% funded for phase 1 (now 67% since I started writing this post). This makes me happy.
