Hey everyone! So the first call of the Social Web Incubator Community Group is at 4PM GMT this Friday, May 5th. I hope you can make it!

This will be a somewhat loose call, going over topics of the group and the state of things.

Call details posted on the blogpost. Quick link to find call time in your timezone: worldtimebuddy.com/?qm=1&lid=6

Good news, !postActiv community!  I've gotten everything together, and plateia.org is now available for registrations.  It's meant to be a proving ground and watering hole for postActiv, so if you want to check out the latest features (or would just like a more neutral instance), sign up today!
