But people like Çelik envision a world where open source software lowers the bar just as easily. They see a pocket-sized web server pre-loaded with all the Indie Web applications you could possibly need.

At this year’s camp, Jack Senechal, Augustin Bralley, and Harlan Wood took a first step in that direction in building a 1 terabyte file server that can fit in the palm of your hand. They cobbled it together using a Raspberry Pi, a portable hard drive, and the Camlistore software built by Fitzpatrick and Slatkin. Even with help from Fitzpatrick and Slatkin, they didn’t quite get it working by the end of camp, but that’s only appropriate. The movement is unfinished.

Great visual: "pocket-sized web server"
