IndieWeb Features

  • personal domain as identity:
    • "I'm glad to see that BlueSky supports custom domains! I have zero interest in sitting on a username in the bluesky namespace. Setting it up was roughly the same as pointing your own domain to a hosting provider, and a lot easier than Mastodon/ActivityPub!" @Aaron Parecki March 6, 2023

IndieWeb Requests

Requests to add support for building blocks to make the service more IndieWeb friendly:



  • tweet thread announcing the project
    • "Twitter is funding a small independent team of up to five open source architects, engineers, and designers to develop an open and decentralized standard for social media. The goal is for Twitter to ultimately be a client of this standard. 🧵" @jack December 11, 2019







AT Protocol




    • "It is worth noting that this is the second hand wavy proposal Dorsey has come up with in the space of 12 months. BlueSky promised much the same.

      The Stolen Valor of calling it ‘Web/X’ should be a warning as should the fact that CryptoPonzi land is sinking today as Celsius rugs." @hallam June 13, 2022

Twitter controlled

  • Criticism & thread:
    • "Jack is many things, but an idiot he is not. He's whip smart. He knows we exist, he literally follows us.

      This is not an announcement of reinventing the wheel. This is announcing the building of a protocol that Twitter gets to control, like Google controls Android." @joinmastodon December 11, 2019
