How the internet lost its decentralised innocence

IN “INFORMATION RULES”—published in 1999 but still one of the best books on digital economics—Carl Shapiro and Hal Varian, two economists, popularised the term “network effects”, which means that in the digital world size easily begets size. The more popular a computer operating system, the more applications it will attract, drawing in even more users, and so on. Two decades ago the idea helped people understand the power of Microsoft and its Windows software. Today it is the default explanation for how Facebook, Google and other tech giants became dominant. The more people sign up to a social network, for instance, the more valuable it becomes for present and prospective users.

Itty bitty sites are contained entirely within their own link. (Including this one!) This means they’re…
💼 Portable – you don’t need a server to host them
👁 Private – nothing is sent to–or stored on–this server
🎁 Easy to share as a link or QR code

Itty bitty sites can hold about as much as a printed page, and there is a lot you can do with that:

What the IndieWeb on WordPress needs is to be much more robust.  Or it just needs to be more robust in general even without WordPress.  When it works its glorious.

The Pepper Drive Parade

Our local neighborhood gets together at 10am on the 4th of July for a neighborhood parade. There are far more people in the parade than watching it, so it’s more like a gathering at the top of the street in preparation followed by a procession to the bottom of the street where there’s another gathering with snacks and drinks. Those who are along the parade route seem to eventually join the parade and walk to the end for the party.

There were some truly creative little costumes and decorations, but I think my favorite part of the parade today was a bewildered coyote that was coming up the street in the opposite direction of the parade who was shocked to see a mob of people with horses and a firetruck coming down the street. He managed to run off down a side street and escape.

Read Three examples of annotations, bookmarking, & sharing in my digital commonplace book by W. Ian O'Byrne (W. Ian O'Byrne)
I’ve been experimenting with some IndieWeb philosophies and tools on this site, but more importantly on my breadcrumbs website. My breadcrumbs website is my digital commonplace book. This is inspired by the website philosophy & structure developed by Chris Aldrich. My purpose is to switch up my relationship with others and social media networks while doing more to own my content online. To that end, one major purpose (for now) on my breadcrumbs site is to be more intentional in the materials that I share with others as I read and explore online.

Some interesting and useful UI examples here. May have to iterate on some of my own design now.
