have some webrings and lists while we're at it
> Personal sites aren’t a quest for web domination. The indie web is an expression of digital freedom. They don’t need to be mainstream, they don’t need to be works of art. They just need to be allowed to exist, even in the outer reaches of the web! There is a sad reality, yes, BUT, so fucking what? Let the indie web exist and if anyone wants help with a digital garden landscape that is a personal site, you are here to help where you can. This isn’t about winning or losing. It’s about having the option to create something of your own if you are bothered. Most aren’t, sure. But some are, and those people should be celebrated which is why The Forest exists.
A somewhat depressing realisation
So I think I finally found the answer to my question about what can I do to help people go back to personal sites: nothing.
@pixouls Do you know of a way to check total transferred/uncompressed size on mobile? Perhaps a web service?
thank you for this list! I tried The Forest a while back but the unlisted nature of it was a bit of a headache, I wish more webrings used descriptions of sites too as it's a pale imitation of a proper links page.
A fediverse community for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
