One of the things I really like about indieweb is how it fosters meeting in real life. Local meetings once or twice every month, IndieWebCamps dotted throughout the year, and an IndieWebSummit once a year. Everyone is welcome to attend any of these, whether you founded the movement, or have never had your own website before.

Without counterbalances I find social media is weirdly and paradoxically alienating, so it’s cool to have community baked in.

  1. Totally agree about the community feel. I used to spend a lot of time on Usenet in the late 90s, early 00s, and to me the #indieweb movement reminds me of the kind of connections I made there. Lose relations, tightly coupled to an idea or a theme. I used to participate in a Danish usenet group for Macintosh/Apple heads. It was great, met a lot of people IRL, some I still have occasional contact with today.
