Paul Robert Lloyd:
Such notions of craftsmanship can soon lead us down a dangerous path, raising questions around elitism and discrimination. These are accusations you could level towards the IndieWeb. For all its promise of giving people the tools to regain ownership of their online identity and content, to do so fully and effectively requires a proficiency for coding and familiarity with an endless barrage of acronyms. Encouraging participants to selfdogfood only exacerbates the near-impenetrability and narrowness of this movement.
Rob Weychert chimes in and gets a strong +1 from me:
I’ve been making websites for 20 years. I read a bunch about how to set up webmentions and gave up before I started. 🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/iIv1BgQXlY— Rob Weychert (@robweychert) November 27, 2018
If even web people find it difficult, how can we ever manage to empower non-web people to produce web-like content?
