Cloudflare friends and haters, have a look at this. Cloudflare now provides an IPFS gateway and use IPFS as backend for your site.

Hello federation, my name is Feneas - https://feneas.org/hello-federation/
> We feel that the federated web could do with an organisation that does not directly represent any of the projects, but aims to fight for a better future for the whole federated web. That is why we founded the "Federated Networks Association ry", a non-profit registered in Finland.
