The Small Web isn’t about going back to the days of GeoCities. It’s about going forward differently, using modern tech in a non-colonial manner.

It’s not about building clones of Twitter, YouTube, etc. There’s no way anyone can self-host a dozen different services. Instead, it’s about having a single-tenant place on the Web that you own and control without technical knowhow; a place you can add Twitter, YouTube, etc., *features* to.

@aral How do we use colonial technologies in non-colonial ways? It sounds extremely tricky when "modern" Internet technology has been developed almost completely for colonial purposes in one form or another.

@josias We repurpose them best we can and use them as a bridge. We evolve :)
