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.

Three core concepts that are important to understand: 'Your content is yours' not FB/Twitter/etc, 'You are better connected' by pushing to multiple services, and 'You are in control' of the content, format, and permanence of your links.

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