I'd love to see a book written on getting started with the indieweb, aimed at people who don't have much experience with computers. Part course on tech literacy, part how-to guide on how to escape the grips of big tech companies. Anyone know if something like that already exists? If not, I'm kind of interested in writing one, so if you are too, send me a message.

Boosts appreciated, and also tagging this in

Beautiful chat with Ouassima Laabich-Mansour on the Future of Memory by Superrr Network:

"we need to focus our decolonising on the present in order to move into the future without this amount of harmful, “infected” knowledge & perspectives of the world. If we leave that here, which tomorrow will be yesterday, if we move on with clarity, then we can start to scratch the surface of disrupting the many colonial continuities."
