Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society to Host IndieWebCamp Oct 11-12, 2014!

Harvard's Berkman Center

Join us at Harvard’s Berkman Center of Internet and Society for two days of a 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! This will be the very first IndieWebCamp in Cambridge and one of many IndieWeb events.

Like IndieWebCamp SF, this event will be free and limited to 20 people.

Event Details

What is the IndieWeb?

The IndieWeb movement is a global community that is building an open set of principles and methods that empower people to take back ownership of identity and data instead of sharecropping on 3rd party websites. Homestead, don’t sharecrop! You’ll learn about ways to empower yourself to own your data, create and publish content on your own site, and only optionally syndicate to third-party silos. Along the way you’ll get a solid grounding in the history and future of Microformats, domain ownership, IndieAuth, WebMention and more!
