I just realized: One thing I'm missing from the Fediverse are event calendars.
I'm currently in a group of people planning a climate protest, and we're using Facebook to post events there for people to subscribe to.
I'm not aware of any federated social network / tool where I could post a calendar event and people could subscribe to it.
That would be a really useful feature to get more people off Facebook.

It's been a pretty intense week on the fedi. Inherently, I think we all care about this space, so that has lead to some very passionate exchanges, and quite a few ugly ones.
Personally, I think this is a good thing. The organic quality of growth on the fedi is one of the main things I dig about it. Ha, and sometimes that isn't going to be pretty.
That said, it's important to remember to take care of yourself and decompress whenever you get the chance.
Just breath, baby. We're gonna be fine.
"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
so it's official, the government is trying to kill me. i cant survive off £93 a week, especially when we're being hit with such cold weather. i literally cannot work, i'm disabled, even standing for longer than 20 minutes can put me in severe pain. walking to the local store is difficult enough. at this rate i will have to decide between freezing or starving within the month.
if you have the ability, please consider donating so that i can keep the lights on.
