Indie Term Re-use

Due in large part to the growing awareness and popularity of the IndieWeb, press coverage etc., 2014 saw both the launch of other "Indie" branded efforts, sometimes with deliberate overlap, or opportunistic use of the term "indie" as a shorthand for "independent".

audio is a sound recording indieweb post that is spoken or otherwise created by the author of a site.



Audio posts, especially spoken word like podcasts, can be very personal and emotionally compelling. In many ways a high quality audio post has a very different impact on the listener than the equivalent as a text note.


Use an h-entry as always, and then an HTML5 <audio> element with class name u-audio and src attribute of the URL of the audio file, e.g.

<audio class="u-audio" src="" controls="controls">
alternate text content - like a transcript

  • Sun, January 4 /* Indieweb Examples */

Ting is a mobile virtual network provider(MVNO) owned by TUCOWS, launched in February of 2012. Ting is characterized by a per-unit usage model where each device has a base cost plus tax. Minutes, texts, and data are offered in 4 bands, after which there is pure per-unit pricing(Rates).

Ting runs on Sprint's CDMA network, with voice roaming on Verizon. It has announced that in February of 2015(subject to change), it will launch GSM offerings. While not revealed, these appear to be on T-Mobile's network.

In December of 2015, Ting announced(Blog Post) it was getting into the home internet business by buying a majority stake in a small independent service provider in Charlottesville, Virginia with the goal of further expansions in other communities.

IndieWebCamp was founded in 2011 by:

The IndieWeb "movement" (as much as two people getting together and naming something is a "movement") was started in 2010 by:

after they both attended the Federated Social Web Summit in Portland Oregon and decided what they wanted was a different focus, a focus on:

  • creators instead of talkers - people that create design/UX/code instead of just email/chat about it.
  • selfdogfooding - using your creations on your own website that represents your primary self
  • own your data - owning what you author by publishing it first on your own site, and only later copying to silos

Tantek and Aaron decided to use the term "IndieWeb" or phrase "Indie Web" to refer to this new focus and effort. The next year they joined forces with Amber & Crystal and organized the first IndieWebCamp in Portland Oregon.
