A Twitter of Our Own at OERxDomains 2021 ConferenceI enjoyed Chris’ presentation on personally breaking away from the silos and building up the technology that enables his home on the web. I have mixed feelings about the level of effort this takes, having just made it to “Level 2” of IndieWebify.Me myself with Webmentions.It’s a lot more involved to create your own independent website and implement microformats, Webmentions, etc. on your own, than to use a silo like Twitter. On the one hand, that’s a great filter. I enjoy reading folks in the IndieWeb community because, just by the nature of having their own website, I know I’m connecting with resourceful and clever individuals who have something to say, and who I can probably learn from. On the other hand, it’s harder to find each other. There’s no central IndieWeb discovery feature, which, I suppose, is part of the point.2021-05-09 15:38:00 -0400 -0400
