IndieWebCamp: June 25, 2011 (2011-06-25) at 10am through June 26 (2011-06-26) at 6pm. URLs:,,


personal identity

To add yourself to the guest list, you'll need to create an account on this wiki and add yourself to this page.

Log in with your own OpenID domain!

Using your Google Profile as your Open ID is not good enough! If you're serious about the Indie Web, then you can demonstrate that by setting up Open ID on your own domain.

builders only

Similar to the Federated Social Web Summit of 2010, IndieWebCamp 2011 is for active builders only in order to focus the limited time we have on productive real world discussions and code/design/ux sharing that will help us move forward.

Being a builder means you must do one or more of:

  • code. create or contribute to indieweb open source projects
  • design. create or contribute to indieweb designs, graphic, layout, adaptive or otherwise.
  • ux. create wireframes or other indieweb user interface flows

As an indieweb builder, you must be using the things you build (code, design, ux) on your personal site.

As an indieweb camp builder, you must share at least some small part of what you build and run on your personal site.

Still not sure if you're an indieweb builder?

Check out the Builder wiki page.

apprentices to builders

Perhaps you don't have a personal site.

Or you have a personal site, but have no idea how to setup OpenID.

Or you're a builder, but only for other people, and don't actively build things for your own site.

Maybe you're really excited about the IndieWeb and want to join it as soon as you can!

You can still attend IndieWebCamp as an apprentice to a builder.

A builder may bring an apprentice, and is completely responsible for them.

If you're not a builder, but want to be, or want to create and contribute to the indieweb but don't know where to start, team up with a builder, and ask them to add you.

In the meantime, be sure to get setup with your own personal identity so you can contribute to the wiki, and start learning what you can do to add your personal site to the indie web.

Final Count

From the builders + apprentices it appears the final IndieWebCamp Classof2011 count is:

  • 36 total (9 women = 25%!)

Compared to last year's photo of the 2010 Federated Social Web Summit which had:

  • 37 total (1 woman = 2.7%)

I'd say that's progress.


Thanks to our sponsors - if you see these folks walking around, be sure to thank them for sponsoring IndieWebCamp.
