@dajbelshaw awesome how thoughtful you create that project!
A person who prominently talks about Fake News in germany is @kattascha. She even wrote a book about it!
I think it's only available in german: https://www.luebbe.de/quadriga/buecher/gesellschaft/fake-facts/id_7746038
Maybe you can talk to her.
Here is a report about Fake News and her book including 3 links to german NGOs fighting misinformation: https://www.deutschlandfunknova.de/beitrag/fake-facts-wo-verschwoerungsmythen-herkommen-und-was-wir-dagegen-tun-koennen
Maybe you have someone in the team who can read german?
Another call for people from under-represented groups on the Fediverse to volunteer an hour of their time to discuss mis/disinformation in federated social networks.

Ideally, we want to wrap up user interviews next week, so we can spend the two weeks after that doing analysis of results 😅
Boosts for reach encouraged!
Awesome. Just spoke with @bernini and @mayel about #Zappa, "a custom @bonfire extension to empower communities with a dedicated tool to deal with the coronavirus "infodemic" and online misinformation in general."
I'm being tasked with creating user stories based on interviews and workshops.
If this sounds like something you (or someone you know) might be interested in contributing to, let us know!
Boosts appreciated for reach 🚀
We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.
Calling anybody with experience with creating international multi-stakeholder cooperatives:
We're thinking about that form of org for https://www.valueflo.ws/ which is now being worked on, used by, and implemented by groups in the US and several European nations as of now. Some Canadians were involved earlier and might return. People in other parts of North and South America and Africa have connected a bit.
So how do we do something like that?
What are the hurdles? Who are good advisors?
We've agreed to publish our weekly meeting notes on #socialhub as a little step to improve our onboarding & dev experience
a new thread on #socialhub that raises a lot of questions to be discussed together :)
We've started a thread on #socialhub: How to improve bonfire development and onboarding experience https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/discussing-how-to-improve-bonfire-dev-experience/2152
