I am tempted to do an open video conference session (what songs have called "office hours") for an AMA or my #OSMF candidacy. Would people be interested to dial in and chat?
Let's say I want to have an open video chat meeting, where people can connect and we can all have an audio-video chat. And I'd like to only use open source/privacy preseving/free software tools. “Open this URL in your browser to connect” is best.
What's the best tool for that now? What do yous recommend?

At one point the internet was literally mostly porn, and it's still way harder to filter porn than fash stuff. The decision to let fascism proliferate on the internet was an intentional decision, for god's sake quit giving the techbros who made these decisions ANY benefit of the doubt. Look at the ugly ugly truth, stare it in the face, it's good for healing from gaslighting. The internet doesn't suck, techbros suck.
Anyone know much about #CBT? (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)? It sounds interesting and the little I've read on Wikipedia etc seems to help me.
Anyone recommend any books or resources so I can learn at home?
