IndieWebCamp in 2011

IndieWeb is a community of people building software to enable personal, independently hosted websites to independently maintain their social data on their own web domains rather than on large, centralized social networking services. First developed at a series of conferences known as IndieWebCamp by Tantek Çelik, Amber Case, Aaron Parecki, Crystal Beasley[1] and Kevin Marks,[2][3][4] it uses a suite of tools including Webmention and microformats in order to decentralize social communication and distribution of content.
