This is an excellent post analyzing the weaknesses of the Indieweb as it is currently constituted. You may have already seen my response. Daniel Goldsmith makes the point that the Indieweb is target-blind, exclusionary, and "has at its core a significant barrier to entry." I can't disagree. It instantiates a certain point of view of the world (the same one that informs existing social networks), it is complicated and difficult to follow, and it doesn't take into account the broader ideal of what an Indieweb should be.
