## Irish Cancer Society Fundraiser

Some of our members who have been affected by cancer are working together to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society. The members will be dying their hair, getting their legs waxed (ouch!) and getting cancer related tattoos, all to reach their goal of €3,000\. If you would like to donate, you can contact [lithium](/about/contact/lithium) or check out their fundraising page at [http://www.mycharity.ie/event/katia_valadeaus_event/](http://www.mycharity.ie/event/katia_valadeaus_event/).

## Trip Away

We here on committee are busy planning a trip away for the inter-semester break; between exams and semester two. Two years ago we went to Brussels to attend the Free Open Source Developers European Meeting (FOSDEM), which members really enjoyed - however this year the first day or FOSDEM falls on the last day of the exam period (31st of January). So we're looking for something a bit more suitable and asking for your suggestions. Please email [committee](/about/contact/committee) if you have any ideas!

Needless to say, it works very uniquely, all you have to do is to write an article over there and if you need any corrections or additions from your peers, then you can send them that article's web URL and they can edit and rewrite it as they think fit plus an original copy will always remain with you.

## Mastodon
Mastodon is a federated social network which shares similarities to Twitter, but differs from Twitter in how it is administrated as a decentralized federation of servers running open source software. Basically Mastodon takes the best part from Twitter, and then it does it a little better.

The distributed, open-source platform offers better tools for privacy and fighting harassment than Twitter offers, but coupled with this is a steep learning curve. Mastodon’s federated nature means there’s no single website to use, and learning how to sift through its timeline of toots can take some time.
