Own your data.

Rather than posting content on third-party silos of content, we should all own the content we're creating. Publish on your own domain, and syndicate out to silos.

Join us at The Skiff for a day-long BarCamp-style gathering of web creators building and sharing open web technologies to empower users to own their own identities & content, and advance the state of the indie web.


Consider also signing up for dConstruct 2012, 7th September 2012 in Brighton.
