…(seconds later) Hey, the post appeared here on my blog, and you’re looking at it. Success! Next step in my road to IndieWeb is using “microsub” and a client like Monocle to keep track of new posts from others in the IndieWeb community.
(Oh, and this is a test of link syndication, another part of my IndieWeb Summit 2019 hack day experimentation. That means you should see a small TripAdvisor icon (green binoculars) associated with this post. If you click on that icon you’ll go to the full review on TripAdvisor.com)
If you have a chance to talk to your Dad today I hope you’ll take advantage of the opportunity. Miss you Dad, love you always.
Decentralization is one of the core aspects of the IndieWeb, which aims at enabling a people-focused alternative to today’s very (if not alarmingly) centralized “corporate web”, but doing so by applying familiar, existing technologies in careful ways that keep the user in control of their data including identity, posts, code, created content, location, and more.
Happily today’s Hackers Day is set up to encourage hands-on experimentation and adoption, and the room is full of wonderfully knowledgeable people eager to help. Look for another post after the day is done, and we’ll see how well I do.
