small web

Small Web is a phrase used in a 1999 article, a hosting service, two consulting services, more recently a May 2020 article, and repurposed in a Aug 2020 blog post to describe (without citing) a subset of IndieWeb principles, yet claiming to be exceptionally different (per narcissism of small differences), comparing aspirational ideals to practical IndieWeb solutions (example of Nirvana fallacy).
