@dajbelshaw thanks for thoughtful discussion! Clarification: “libertarian” (any kind) is a misimpression at best.
#IndieWeb succeeds & grows because it’s a #community co-operating for individual agency. What @Rabble said: https://tantek.com/2020/010/t2/indieweb-community-inclusive-anarchistic-punk
Context, he also said that while participating in-person at https://tantek.com/2019/303/e1/homebrew-website-club-sf and after he demonstrated the Planetary #scuttlebutt client he’s building.
I highly recommend participating in an @IndieWebCamp or Homebrew Website Club to get a more accurate impression of the #IndieWeb community.
