Okay, there's a lot to talk about in this first issue CanaryNet News Bulletin.

First of all, the CanaryNet News Bulletin was born today. I figured it would be beneficial to have somewhere to talk about the site. I don't know if anyone is reading, but I'm going to publish these anyways because I feel like it. I can't promise regular updates, but I will let you know what is going on whenever something happens.

With that out of the way, onto the Matrix server. I have started a Matrix homeserver here @ for my friends and I to use. There will be public chatrooms that any of you can pop into and say hi to us. You may also reach me specifically any time @ (Don't be afraid to, I'd love to chat with you all!

UPDATE: The matrix server is being shut down. This Conduit server has been replaced with a Synapse server at You can now reach me at instead.

Unfortunately, the first CanaryNet News Bulletin is not all good news. The Yesterweb has shut down their webring due to its ever-increasing size. Apparently this happened last month and I only just now noticed, so it's not really news for anyone who has been paying more attention than I have. Worry not, my fellow explorers of the deepest pits of the World Wide Web, I may have something for you all soon enough ;>
