Introduction

The promise of a free and open Internet for all people of earth has not yet been broken. Rather, somewhere along the way, we were all distracted and lured by “free” social media platforms. When Steve Jobs dropped the iPhone, we entered the citadel. For the past year I have been secretly digging a tunnel to freedom.


Do you know what’s not dead? The Internet.

Shit’s popping off. The HTML/HTTP stack is still here, it’s open, it’s practically free, and you can access it on ANY host. I can even navigate this site on my flip phone. I threw this site together as a project and after a few months online I am getting around 250 unique visitors a month. Mind you, I don’t have a Google account, Facebook, Linkdin, to pathetically shill my awesome website. This is just organic traffic from word of mouth and people finding us online.


Conclusion

You can take this code and run your own social media platform, invite whoever you want, from your house for free.
