My presentation about #framasoft to inspire the freshly started Danish initiative on free software (at PROSA København):
The main outcome: we need to find aspects that make people interested, in a country that does not value e.g. privacy, security, and price as high than e.g. France or Germany. Green transition? Other ethical values? Ideas welcome :-)
Thanks to @pyg for the help!

And obviously, #freshrss and #peppercarrot were named 😁
Here in small Netherlands we have the same challenge.

Yep, but you're lucky, cause you already have @disroot @disroot in NL and @nubo_coop in Belgium :)

Privacy is a real subject of interest in NL/BE, but from what I understand, it's less a subject in DK.

If there is any way we can help to start yet another new node out there, give us a shout. Also check it's an initiative that strives to not only promote federated service providers, but create support and solidarity network between groups running platforms.
@disroot Yes, was already mentioned in my presentation. See for an existing local node, which might be interested. I will try to meet them
maybe stress the community aspect of open source code? I haven't been to Denmark in ages, though the concept of a shared codebase might be appealing?
@Framasoft for people less interested in privacy, FOSS can be presented as a solution to several issues (GAFAM-related):
- ethical questions about the algorithms (information bubble, "who knows, who decides, who decides who decides", Zubof)
- political questions: use of these tools to manipulate opinion, and the political influence of the firms themselves
- ecological questions, as these firms desire growth and ads, they are one of the main drivers of our environmental impact now
Thanks all for the good ideas already :-)
