👓 Surveillance Capitalism and IndieWeb | Cathie LeBlanc

Read Surveillance Capitalism and IndieWeb by Cathie LeBlanc (Desert of My Real Life)
I have spent the last five days working on my own web site (which I’ve owned for a long time) to IndieWebify it. Check it out at cathieleblanc.com. Be warned that I’m in the early stages of setting my IndieWeb site up so things will evolve. This work has inspired me and I’m sure I’ll be writing about these efforts and my thoughts about them as I move forward.
There’s always something awesome about watching people discover, react to, and delve their way into the IndieWeb movement. While there are a myriad of motivations for wanting to join the independent web, there seems to be an underlying commonality I see in people who seem to all wonder “Where has this been all along?” or say “This seems like the way the web should have always worked.” My favorite, however, is watching the empowerment it gives people when they discover it. We need more of this on the web and in life.
