Great post from Wences García of MarketGoo on the IndieWeb. I met Wences and the MarketGoo team a few years ago, and was so impressed with their culture, energy, and values. Its fantastic to see them sharing those values with the world in such a positive way.
It’s still too early to reach any conclusions, but I’m feeling better now that I control my own content and that I’ve found a place where to post my content freely and without fear.
But will be the Indieweb movement be the solution to save us all? The struggles I had at the beginning setting up my IndieWeb on a WordPress website have prevented me from thinking that way.
It’s clear that the IndieWeb needs to be more convenient, otherwise non-early adopters will not even get close to this movement.
I think Wences is right that with many building blocks now in place, it is important to start making the IndieWeb more user-friendly. Its no coincidence that Wences' web presence is now on Micro.blog, which is a much more approachable platform.
