Mikro5 (“micro go” because Japan) is hosted at, a microblogging system for those who want to control their content. It’s reasonably priced, and even has an option for hosting micro podcasts. is super low-friction in terms of usage, making it easy to post your thoughts quickly.

You can:

  • format your posts and pages with markdown
  • cross post to Twitter, Facebook (pages), Linkedin
  • import Instagram
  • make use of webmentions
  • enjoy a social networking aspect, without likes and re-posts, just conversation
  • use emojis as a new kind of tag

I’m using IBM Plex from Google Fonts as the type face.
