Notes on the “indieweb” #3: Who’s it for?

In the first two parts of this series on the indieweb I looked at publishing to your own website, conversations off the social media giants’ networks and finding content when you’re no longer using Twitter, Facebook etc. In this part I’ll start to explore the meaning of “indieweb” – specifically, who it’s for.

Libraries as alternative

Lots of organisations offer similar services to libraries. Is thinking of libraries as an alternative to the Googles and Amazons of this world better than trying to compete with them?

world@hey.com launches and it can edit posts, which sounds clunky

Been following the Hey! email to blog post service for a couple of weeks, and it’s now live (a really impressive example of developing an embryonic idea into a product quickly – take note fellow app/service developers). It even lets you edit existing posts, which is something you need on a publication platform, but looks… clunky.
