Seafile

Seafile
https://www.seafile.com

Seafile is a cloud storage solution similar to Dropbox or Google Drive. However, unlike those services, the Seafile server is self-hosted on hardware controlled by the user. Users can interact with their files in two primary modes. In the first mode, using the Drive client, files are downloaded as needed without an initial synchronization step. Copies of files that are in use are stored locally, both for speed and to provide offline access, but users don’t need to have space locally for all their cloud files. In Syncing mode, a library of files is synchronized to the local device. After the initial synchronization, only changed portions of files are sent over the network. In both modes, users may opt to enable client-side file encryption, which encrypts files prior to sending them to the server. Seafile desktop clients are available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Mobile clients are available for Android and iOS devices. Seafile servers are available for Windows and Linux. Home users may be interested in the Raspberry Pi version.

WikiTRIBUNE News Platform
https://www.wikitribune.com/

WikiTribune is a news platform that is primarily about volunteers doing neutral, factual, high-quality news. The WikiTribune community strives to create articles with a very high degree of transparency and accountability. The most important thing to understand is that you can edit every story at WikiTribune. You’ll start out with a surprising amount of permission to edit things from day one. After you’ve been around a bit and shown yourself not to be disruptive, you’ll be promoted to being able to publish articles directly. And when the community really finds you genuinely trustworthy (and nice!) you can be promoted to admin. As you have fun with WikiTribune, you’ll likely run into staff members – who are here to support you, not to boss you. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.
