No particular opinion (I didn't look at talk schedule yet); I'll try to pay attention to fediverse. If you use XMPP I'm gonna try to be online too. Same JID as my webfinger address. Let me know so I can whitelist your domain, or something.
....although, this got me thinking, maybe we can organize on IRC (freenode?) or we can spin up an XMPP chatroom with anonymous login? @jaywink @write_as
