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 I'm a fan of your work! Small is Beautiful has had a huge influence on me since I first read it and always wondered what appropriate technology looks like in the context of software.

Nice to see someone pushing the envelope.


@ggpsv Thank you so much, Gabriel, it means a lot to hear that.

Now I just have to get over my latest burnout (fun for the whole family) and start pushing on NodeKit, Domain, and eventually, Place :)
