Re: Introductions (was Re: First 2023 SWICG meeting call on Fri May 19)

So many people are introducing themselves, so I feel like I should join.

Hi, I'm Kagami and am a relatively new contributor for Misskey. I'm 
interested in having a common set of server-client API among multiple 
server implementations. I'm currently trying to implement IndieAuth 
there and want to eventually try Micropub as a ground to start that.

I couldn't join the meeting today, but still I'm happy to see many 
people here!

(My activity in this area is not related to my employer and is 
completely personal, if anyone wonders)
