May Day, May Day, on this Day in May I have a thing to say. Long has federation been a consideration, especially as Mastodon appears to be more than a mirage.

Well done, U.S. Census Bureau, for using only first-party requests. A rare pleasure. Covid19 HWC, hosts? can be what we want and what we need, but how to get on it? @aaronpk @andrew unite @indiewebcamp !

Dear lazyweb: what service OTHER THAN GSUITE do you use for custom email domain (with catch-all support + multi domains), and calendaring (with DAV support)? I need to jump ship from this GSuite garbage
