Indienet is an initiative led by Ind.ie and The City of Ghent to explore the development of new personal networking solutions to empower individuals and citizens with agency and autonomy in the digital age.
The goals of the project include:
To create an engine for creating federated personal web sites and apps based on the W3C Proposed Recommendation ActivityPub protocol.
To create an implementation of a federated personal web site for individuals.
To create an implementation of a federated hub for organisations (e.g., city departments, businesses, etc.) to enable them to engage in this federated landscape while respecting the rights of individual participants.
To empower the citizens of Ghent with the option to have their own federated personal web site, at their own domain, that they can use to communicate with each other, with other people from around the world (using a shared protocol), and with the city.
This living documentation is an important part of the initiative and evolves as the project does. See the docs section for documentation on the documentation project itself.
Please note that the project itself and this documentation are in a constant state of development.
