I did some basic initial evaluation of https://jitsi.org/jitsi-meet/ using the open community server. Pretty impressive compared all the usual commercial services I've used over the years (and seemingly I've used all of them to some disappointment on Linux). Works from Firefox (unlike gotomeeting), doesn't bury my quad-i7 laptop when screensharing (like the broken Zoom Linux client), and has integrated etherpad support for notes/minutes among other features. FOSS, so we can securely self-host.
Comparison of audio SRC performance
http://src.infinitewave.ca/ has this nice tool comparing the performance of various sample rate converters. Most of the popular FOSS ones are there.

A nice little Mastodon instance. Mild trolling encouraged (keep it local), but not required. Malicious behaviour is not tolerated. Follow Wheaton's law and you'll be fine.
