Tired of Twitter? Fed up with Facebook? Miss the variety and quirkiness of the open web? Be the change you want to see in the world by coming to our introduction to the Indieweb!
IndieWeb is a set of software utilities which allows maintainers of personal, independently hosted blogs to independently maintain their social data on their own web domains rather than on large, centralized social networking services. Find out more on the IndieWeb website.
At the session you’ll learn about the philosophy behind Indieweb and the benefits (and challenges) it presents. Just as importantly, you’ll learn how to go about reducing your dependency on the big platforms and building your own independent identity on the web.
We're pleased to announce Kevin Marks, leading IndieWeb advocate and inventor and one of the inventors of Microformats will be joining us for the session. We're also hoping to welcome members of the Homebrew Website Club, a meetup of creatives passionate about improving their own websites, sharing successes & challenges with a like-minded and supportive community.
