This is perhaps the best way to directly understand the benefits of the compared to the existing locked paradigm of corporate social networks.

Liked Khürt Williams's IndieWeb on WordPress

Got an IndieWeb site? Want to interact with Mastodon, Hubzilla, and the rest of the fediverse? Bridgy Fed is for you.

Funny, think and are Two different websites, without the "www" subdomain I have zero subscriptions, with the "www" part I have my usual woodwind subscritions of people. not sure if this "bug" is on my side or on woodwind side..any idea ?

Been busy on lately so when I logged in to my account, using my own website to login I was impressed to notice not only I could intereact with the content of my subscriptions (like, reply, fav) but I was also able to comment (using my own site to host the comment thanks to micropub) but most of all I could POSSE or syndicate my comment to the social media profile I wanted without leaving the Woodwind interface : this in short is a dream come true for me, it means I can read content I subscribe in one place and use my own site as a pilot to push my interactions to other silo's (think facebook, twitter or more open mastodon) while hosting the reply on my own website !! 

I'm trully amazed but maybe you think this all sounds like very complicated, so let me link to a few examples : 

This is Woodwind interface, it shows a post from Jeremy Keith at 

I commented from Woodwind but thanks to Micropub, I self-host my comments : 

Link :

Thanks to Webmentions these self-hosted comments are also displayed on blog post :

This is amazing, not sure people realize how much amazing it is in fact !

it means indieweb principles, ideas are every day one step closer to become a unified "put it in practice" approach to build interactions on the openweb between differents website/indentities while still being able to push these interactions where one's want them to go (mastodon, twitter, facebook) and still be part of global conversation while retaining ownership of data produced. 

All of this is possible thanks to amazing people in different communities cooperating together to build step by step another vision of the social web, a vision where People are in the center of interactions and have control on the content they produce while still dancing with other platforms or closed platforms; this is huge !

Meet the IndieWeb peeps on IRC on Freenode, visit !

Wow now WoodWind allow to read & share from one single interface, connected to my instance? :)))

Audio, SoundCloud, and the Indieweb

nice ideas over there...also interested to self-host more audio bytes..
Known already support some stuff, but I'm concerned about huge files, and how it's going to impact by Known import/export backup, if with times I have to import huge backups files to relaunch my site on a new domain or even just move from current host to self-hosted vps again..

Ricardo Mendes

So happy to have @indiehosters to upgrade to latest @withKnown version :)
