(2017-04-05) Aldrich Mastodon Vs Indie Web

Chris Aldrich says Mastodon isn’t as Federated or as Decentralized as the IndieWeb.

If we want openness, federation, identity, flexibility, and control why not just have our own website?

Comments and reactions from those silos come back to live with my original posts so everything lives here on my site–future-proofed against their possible disappearance. It also means the conversation doesn’t need to be fragmented across multiple platforms anymore.

IndieWeb still feels (to me) too "heavy" to the normie user. Blog, comments, webmentions... it feels like a big step up from WordPress, but maybe I'm wrong...
