This is why Dewey is one of my favorite writers about the web: https://twitter.com/mweinraub87/status/1159845324913106944

I am sure once everyone's semesters start cranking over next few weeks we will have to reshuffle the time anyways, but we have been having awesome weekly conversations: https://indieweb.org/events/2019-07-15-indieweb-education-meetup

If you are at and interested in either the or the group you should join us for camp NYC Nov 5-6 https://indieweb.org/2019/NYC Free awesome conference to build out your space online.

@telliowkuwp At Summit added captions for first time this year. Took large investment of diversity and inclusion funds but figured reached more people globally and accessibly than flying in one or two more people from underrepresented communities

@Chess_Ess Started collecting examples of disclosures here: https://indieweb.org/disclosure#brainstorming Please share if you include in your syllabus. Also doing a session at where we examine the disclosures(or lack thereof in our syllabi).

To Dream Big, Think Small #IndieWeb

2 min read

I am tired hearing about scale. In such a short time we have warped success to think it means millions overnight and billions in a year or two....

Because the web and local media will be saved doing the exact same thing again....

I want to dream big. So I think small.

A server (or rented host) in every library and patrons can after completing training and signing community code of conduct. Abandoned sites archived. Libraries as local archives...who would have thought.

Or a small local newspaper that provides hosting to subscribers. Give each physical address a domain, let families tell their story. Cash in on local sports coverage. Build in marketplace, do coupon newsletters, local business banners and crawl back classified revenue from facebook. Donate portion to local charities. Reader loyalty rather than data exploitation.

A school system where every student can finish the sentence, "My url is..." Students taught to not only read the web but write it as well. A literacy program that involves reading and writing? Good idea.

Those are my dreams.

That was an awesome use of the planet. In fact I added it to the page of the wiki: https://indieweb.org/planet#Examples

@Cambridgeport90 For the summit we live streamed using Twitch, archived the videos to @internetarchive and then deleted them from Amazon. If isn't live, and videos must be openly licensed but I have been moving from YouTube to @internetarchive
