0223: /v/selfie


You probably think this post is       about you

One of the tenants of the local web is an identity system that allows you to be whoever you are at that moment.  This can free you up from having to be a “brand” all the time and all the management that goes with that.

But a superseding tenant is that the local web is what you make of it.  If you want to post selfies there and vote up or down other people’s selfies, you can do that.

At localweb.is/v/selfie you can post a photo of yourself and others in the area can vote it up or down.  The /v/ in the URL changes the slash from one with just posting to one with posting and voting.  It’s sort of like a combination of Instagram and Reddit, but restricted to your local surroundings.  Who has the prettiest selfie in your town, in your school, or at the football game you are at right now.  Wouldn’t you like to know?

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
