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 Watching "Small Is Beautiful #11" now, as a long time hoster of websites, I'd really love to find a newer/smaller way where users (sorry, PEOPLE) have control of all of their data!
