"Making sure that publishing on the Web is easy and accessible is one of the most important things we can do to preserve the open Web"

— Tara Vancil (via tweet)


.....

"There’s a set of values in the p2p Web community and I think it’s important to amplify them. They are:"

  1. We should improve and preserve the Web.
    The Web is a genuine social accomplishment and we should look after it. Don’t let lesser platforms win out.
  2. Devops is oppressive!
    Many people can’t publish websites or apps because they can’t run servers. Publishing should be accessible to all.
  3. “View source” is critical to an open Web.
    The more code that users can read, the more code they can review and learn from.
  4. “Modify source” is the p2p Web’s great power.
    A Web that can be made and remade by its people can better serve their needs and produce a more diverse & exciting world. The Web should be a truly “live” society.
  5. Minimize change, maximize impact.
    The p2p Web should still be the Web. Make it better, don’t remake it.
  6. Don't forget resilience.
    A web based on protocols, not platforms, is a safe web. Don't put data in silos but have various platforms use the same protocols to interact.
— Paul Frazee (via this tweet thread)

getting started

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

While there are many possible ways to get started, I recommend first downloading Beaker Browser. Then watch this short 2min video intro and try creating a simple website along with it!

Also Scuttlebutt, a p2p protocol used in social networking, is good to explore. Recommend watching the intro video, Scuttlebutt Love Story and downloading a client like Patchwork.
