Barnaby Walters I agree in theory, but in practice the indie web of which you speak is only available to those with tech skills to make it.

Laura Kalbag would you agree that wordpress.com (and to a lesser extent, other wordpress services) is non-techie-friendly? It supports most of the infrastructure we’re using on our sites (e.g. pubsubhubbub, pingback, microformats) and provided you hook up your own domain name is an equally valid way of owning your content/identity online as rolling your own.
