Hello. After the freenode debacle and lack of interested from the Wichita University in their Linux user group, we started a new Linux user group for the Wichita area. Anyone is welcome, even if you only have a passing interest in Linux. We have a Mastodon and Twitter. We also set up the groupchat on XMPP, Matrix, IRC, Discord, and Telegram, bridged together with Matterbridge. The information for them is in the pinned post on Mastodon or Twitter (can’t post all the linked here due to the link limit).
We also have a Jitsi channel setup on a private server and are looking to start having meetings. For now, feel free to come chat and have a room of Linux nerds to bounce ideas off of.
