I have started to watch the AlJazeera news channel, I am getting sick of the BBC, and to a point the other UK based news channels constantly going on about covid and ignoring other important events in the world, which if anything get a very brief mention. They seem incapable of putting out a broad range of news.
AlJazeera has some excellent coverage of what is going on in Kazakhstan
AlJazeera can be found on freeview just up from bbc news channel, and is well worth checking out. I am subscribed on Mastodon to a newsbot @firstname.lastname@example.org which federates news stories in to my stream.
They also do some excellent programming, for example there was a recent program looking at the history of the development of the spacesuit and this story was told by the granddaughter of the developer of the Apollo suit.
Linux Foundation events
This is a list of upcoming Linux foundation events.
Libre Graphics Club
Libre Graphics Club – learn how to use community developed image editing software & make ace flyers, posters, stickers, booklets, zines & more.
This appears to be happening on the 20th August via Big Blue Button, however sessions will be recorded. I will try and keep this post updated.

Upcoming events 2021
There are several Free and Open Source related conferences throughout the year. I have made blog posts that will be published on the day these start. However it may help if I created a blog post that will list these conferences in one place and can be republished with updated information.
To this end I have started this process below
Debian Camp / Conference 15 – 24th August
LibreOffice Conference September 23 – 25
SeaGL 5th / 6th November 2021
Emacs Conf 2021 27th / 28th November 2021
Mobilizon is a privacy respecting, federated events management platform. I was given the link on Mastodon after asking if there are any alternatives to Meetup.
I have signed up and the process is really easy, the terms and conditions are also presented in a format that is easy to read / understand (big plus).
You don't need to sign up in order to say you are going to a meeting, another big plus for privacy etc.
