Have you ever worried about putting something witty on Twitter wondering if it will be lost to time and attributed to someone else? How about the ability to push a check-in to Swarm, Facebook, and Instagram simultaneously?
The IndieWeb has been growing since 2013 and strives to create an alternative to content silos and the 'corporate web'. This is achieved through creating a single source of truth for your content and identity aka a personal domain.

Let's explore the ramifications of this and answer any questions you might have together!
