oh, ok, i clearly did misunderstand you.  sorry about that, and thanks
for the clarification!

For the record, if someone wants to announce their own participation in
any activity on whatever proprietary platform, i obviously respect their
freedom to do that (even if i think furthering participation in
proprietary networks is a bad idea in the bigger picture).  But if an
event is actually organized *through* these proprietary services, it
will rule out the folks who haven't submitted themselves to the
proprietor's terms of service.

http://socialsourcecommons.org/toolbox/show/1458  has some suggestions.
 i believe that the "hosted" tag indicates that you can't host them
yourself (i.e. that they are (possibly gratis) web services, instead of
free software).

I dunno how to limit the view for "not:hosted" through their web UI,
alas.  I've cc'ed info@socialsourcecommons.org to see if they have any
