Autonomy online: a case for the IndieWeb | Ana Rodrigues

Ana has put together a brilliant overview of the whywhat, and how of the IndieWeb. I imagine I'll return many times to look up simplified explanations, but a couple of quotes particularly jumped out:

I’ve lost count of how many “Hello worlds” I’ve created and binned in my lifetime when I had a real “product” to build: me.
[My personal website] is where I can experiment, write, build, try, and learn without censorship or limitations.

Although another line sparked a little discussion on the IndieWeb chat about the viability of a singular identity:

I didn’t realize until this point how much it made sense to have a “one true version” of yourself online

I love the concept, but I (like many others) struggle with this in practice. For example, I want a professional portfolio/CV... I probably don't want that to be under the umbrella of "theAdhocracy", but I also don't want to change my online self. It's an interesting tightrope to walk.
