I just found out that "IndieWeb" is an actual movement/community around running your own homepage (and more), and I'm feeling simultaneously very old and ahead of the curve. (cf.

@anaulin Your blog on your domain goes back to 2004. That merits some serious indieweb cred. I am an indieweb neophyte, and likely always will be.

@cstanhope The first blog post on that domain happened in December 2003, but sadly I've lost the archives from before mid-2004. 😿

@anaulin @cstanhope did you check to try to find your old lost stuff?

@wolftune @cstanhope I do have some old screenshots, but honestly the old content isn't all that interesting to me, so I'm not bothering to restore it.

@anaulin I'm sorry to hear that, but still, going strong since 2004. 👍 😀

@anaulin it goes pretty deep. Started as "IndieWebCamp" in 2011 (by people who long before had independent sites but saw the bad-trends of where the web was going).

So, does that mean you're still old-feeling and ahead of the curve or that much more mixed up on how to feel? ;)

I'd say you just fit in and are one of the community already, and that's that! (And I do encourage you to get more involved)
