Rage Against the Content Machine

2019: all our digital lives are in the hands of a few giant corporations. Social Media has become the de-facto standard for our online identities, controlling the world’s collective content output. The IndieWeb movement offers an alternative - but getting out is not that easy. How can we reclaim our space on the web and own our content without losing touch with the rest of the world?

Applying the principles of the IndieWeb enables us to reap the benefits of social media, while still publishing on our own sites. This talk will cover the steps to get started, show practical solutions to common problems, and give you the tools to take back control of your content. Viva la revolución!
