SaturdayJun 24 2017IndieWeb Summit 2017through
The IndieWeb movement is a global community that is building an open set of principles and methods that empower people to take back ownership of identity and data instead of sharecropping on 3rd party websites.
Join us in downtown Portland for two days of a BarCamp-style gathering of web creators building and sharing open web technologies to empower users to own their own identities & content, and advance the state of the indie web!
You’ll learn about ways to empower yourself to own your data, create and publish content on your own site, and only optionally syndicate to third-party silos. Along the way you’ll get a solid grounding in the history and future of domain ownership, Microformats, IndieAuth, Webmention, Micropub and more!
Past events that happened here
TuesdayJan 24 2017Portland Tech Solidarity Meeting
The goal of this meetup is to get interested people from the tech world together with Portland community organizations to discuss practical steps we can take in the face of a Trump administration, while there is still ample time to prepare and plan.
We'll operate on the assumption that Trump means what he says, and that he will work to implement the policies he campaigned on, including mass deportations, "extreme vetting" of immigrants and visitors, and a registry of Muslim Americans.
Together I hope we can find ways to minimize the impact of these policies in and around Portland, help people defend their rights (and fight back), and lobby the companies we work to stop collecting and storing sensitive data wherever possible.
