Adactio: Journal—Indie web building blocks

Another interesting post from Jeremy, this one contains a lot of todo items for me. Quite a lot of them I didn’t even know were possible. It really is amazing how much personal blogs and websites can be setup to connect and share without a huge infrastructure overhead.

Some people have started referring to the indie web movement. I understand where they’re coming from; it certainly looks like a “movement” from the outside, and if you attend an Indie Web Camp, there’s a great spirit of sharing. But my underlying motivations are entirely selfish. In the same way that I don’t really care about particular formats or protocols, I don’t really care about being part of any kind of “movement.” I care about my website.

I like the idea of the indie web camps and must look into those that occur near me.
