The once and future IndieWeb

Tantek Çelik - The once and future IndieWeb
In the beginning, the Web was a simple thing. A bit of HTML, running on a server you probably had root access to, and maybe even had running under your desk. Fast forward 20 years, and most of the Web’s content resides in silos, like Twitter and Facebook and Instagram. Our Web sites have become Tumblrs, or blogs hosted at WordPress.org. But this poses huge challenges for the longevity, integrity, and ultimately ownership of the content we create. In this presentation, Tantek Çelik, one of the great contributors to the open Web challenges us to re-imagine the “IndieWeb” from long ago.
