In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by David Shanske. David introduces us to a set of philosophies known as the IndieWeb, explains how it’s different from the Open Web, and how he’s been involved in the community. We discuss tools that help people own their data while still being able to take advantage of the benefits that social networks offer. We also talk about WordPress’ role and how capable it is out-of-the-box for participating in the IndieWeb.
Stories Discussed:
Bridgy connects individual sites with social networks
IndieWeb Wiki
IndieWeb WordPress Plugin
