Our work with the City of Ghent on our Indienet project (indienet.info) gets a shout out in this month’s New Scientist, in Jacob Aron’s article titled “Stop being the product.”

“On the face of it, [it] sounds a lot like the old web, where people created simple pages hosted on computers they controlled. The crucial difference is that it used to be difficult to put things online without technical know-how – which is partly why easy-to-use services like Facebook are popular.”

@aral WOW. This looks like an amazing project. And shout out to the city of Ghent for being so forward-thinking!

@aral btw, what was the impetus for the City of Ghent to work on a project like this?

@aral Yay, my hometown! Glad to see they're doing great projects like this!
