Rise of the Indie Web

A session at Open Source Bridge 2012

Tuesday 26th June, 2012

3:45pm to 4:30pm (PST)

10 years ago nearly everyone with a blog was known by their own personal site or URL. What happened?

Over time we shifted our creative energies to the emergent "social web", sharecropped our content like so many serfs across Flickr/Twitter/Facebook, and watched while our work was framed with ads (or placed inside them!), sold like so much cattle, or often shut down with permalinks and conversations lost forever: Geocities, Etherpad, Pownce, Vox and others. Never forget.

We've had enough and we're taking it back. Our content, our data, our online identities. We're rebuilding the Indie Web, this time with conduits to social silos so we can control our creative destinies without abandoning our friends.

This panel will discuss a variety of different approaches. Learn how you too can get started and join the new Indie Web.
