100 Days of Something: 19


IndieWebCamp is a gathering of web creators building & sharing open web technologies to advance the state of the indie web. We get together for a weekend to discuss how we can empower people to own their identities and data, then spend a day hacking & creating.

There’s an IndieWebCamp in Düsseldorf this weekend. I didn’t get to go last year and I’d love to have been there this year, but circumstances have dictated otherwise. Kevin Marks has fortunately posted a collection of live notes from this morning’s demos on his site.

Your content is yours, you are better connected, and you are in control.

What appeals to me about the IndieWeb approach is that it doesn’t aim to create an alternate Facebook or Twitter, but rather builds on the principle of each person having their own website. IndieWeb technologies such as webmentions make it possible to communicate with other websites as well as the social media platforms. The webcamps are about developing those technologies and helping people implement them.
