My Thoughts On The Indie Web

The indie web is all about owning your content and having control over it. +Kevin Marks is a big proponent of the IndieWeb and last weeks This Week in Google focused on the Indie Web and one particular product called KNOWN (http://withknown.com). Check out the episode here: http://twit.tv/show/this-week-in-google/266

I found #myfirstwebpage  - do you still have yours?
The first website was posted earlier, but the w3c was founded 20 years ago today too., and there is a gala celebration this afternoon. This made me think about my first website, so I went looking in the Internet Archive (which was redesigned for the first time in years today too).
