Fund FSCI Webinar

AM Arun Mathai Public Seen by 78

Proposed Meeting Time :- 5:00pm to 6:00 pm IST

Meeting Date :- 5/6/21(will be hosted on nixnet -BBB)

This is the draft for the blog post on regarding the jitsi crowdfund webinar. please comment on the same :)

Hi all,

We are going to conduct a webinar to discuss about video conferencing solutions(specifically Jitsi)

Now , you may ask isn't a webinar an overkill??

Like aren't there tens of videos explaining what jitsi is and why it is so much better.

Well..,you are right, But we mean to accomplish something different.

We mean to include jisti not only  as a cool secure alternative to other services  but one which an indiviual/community can host and one which truly respects the term "privacy"

We intend to have a personal connection with the attendees, have a live QnA, share our own personal stories as to why we use jitsi and lastely but mainly tell them about our own fund raising campaign ( for our own  administered jitsi instance (

We simply dont want people to contribute(well that is also cool )but we want people to know how the money they contribute helps us volunteers in running a secure freedom respecting jtsi instance

And i would also like to use the cliche line....

"Thus helping make this world a better place"

Thanks @Arun Mathai for taking the lead to organize this and drafting the blog, sounds good to me.

Could you please give clarification regarding the target audience? Does it include those who want to use these solutions, but not volunteer? In other words, is this webinar for those who want to build, maintain and fund the services, or for those who are interested in using them as external entities?

The basic idea is to introduce the concept of Free Software powered options to general public. So we are making part 1 non technical and open to anyone. We will have a second part to talk about technical aspects later for those who want self host or want to know the technical part.
