The Small Web isn’t about going back to the days of GeoCities. It’s about going forward differently, using modern tech in a non-colonial manner.
It’s not about building clones of Twitter, YouTube, etc. There’s no way anyone can self-host a dozen different services. Instead, it’s about having a single-tenant place on the Web that you own and control without technical knowhow; a place you can add Twitter, YouTube, etc., *features* to.

I think the actual quote may have been closer to the following.
"It's very hard to make money in music but it's fairly easy to make money from people trying to make it in music." - Angus W
I should have written it down immediately after first hear it yesterday. Either way, it's close enough to the exact quote I heard.
It followed on from a statement I'd made that's it's virtually impossible to make money from music, but you could possibly make money from a persona or brand in music.
"Desktop Environments are the natural enemy to everything I value in a operating system. They try to automate everything to a point where the user has to rely on these automatisms to work, without being able to understand/fix/debug these functions." - @sh
(Education is doing Something very similar)
Roland or Roly: Family and friends are my main interests.
"I appreciate SDF but it's a general-purpose server and the name doesn't make it obvious that it's about art." - Eugen Rochko
