Prior to diving headfirst into the idea of taking back control over my content online, I held a number of reservations about the ongoing process of true ownership. I’m the kind of guy that likes to let other people worry about things when I can and, despite being a fully capable systems administrator, I generally avoid running my own personal servers, hosting accounts, or platforms. I have, traditionally, outsourced this job to hosted platforms like Blogger, Flickr, MySpace, Twitter, Facebook, and countless others. Only MySpace has failed me so far, erasing much of my early adulthood from the internet. Why should I turn this control over to smaller teams of developers that may not remain motivated to maintain the projects I’ve, now, come to rely on?
I long for the day in which the web has become IndieWebified to the point that I don’t need to worry about my non-tech friends and family anymore either.
I feel like the walls will eventually come down with technology like Webmentions and I won’t need to spend as much time on machinations like syndication and backfeed to and from silos which can be a drain. This is the dream that gives me even greater hope for future generations living on the web the way I do.
