Reclaim Your Domain Workshop (1)

As part of the Domain of One’s Own Incubator at Emory University earlier this year, Kin and Audrey facilitated a workshop (a discussion, really) about “Reclaim Your Domain.” The Google Doc can be found here. But in the spirit of “reclaim,” those resources are also posted below.


Reclaim Your Domain

Facilitators: Kin Lane @kinlane

Audrey Watters @audreywatters

How do we build an alternative to the corporate web? How do we “re-decentralize the Net”?

Why does this matter? (from Reclaim Your Domain: Honing the Vision)

  • * Historical Internet Archive
  • * Web Literacy (End User and development)
  • * Self presentation and preservation
  • * Flips the web back to the personal, self-determination
  • * About the people, scaling the possibilities of the individual to more easily control their small piece of the web


What are the obstacles?
