The Small Web is for people (not startups, enterprises, or governments). It is also made by people and small, independent organisations (not startups, enterprises, or governments2).

I got site.js up and running on my raspberry pi for a while. Pretty straightforward (I managed the certs stuff eventually).

Hope to dig into this some more. All the ideas are just lovely!

But now Facebook has reportedly decided to allow its staffers to overrule the climate scientists and make any climate disinformation ineligible for fact-checking by deeming it “opinion.”

In A More Beautiful Question, Warren Berger talks about the power and potential of different types of questions.
