Hello world

Hello world. We’re alive and kicking! Setting up together.js in t-10 mins.

This is the Pivilion web residency blog. Pivilion is a decentralized darknet pocket gallery that runs on a Raspberry Pi device. Find out more about it by reading the read me in the menu above.  

You can talk to us using together.js from Mozilla on the right. 

More soon. 🙂
