idno Idno is a modern #indieweb self hosted open source social networking platform. The project was started by Ben Werdmuller, who you may remember from such projects as Elgg, it makes use of a lot of cool technologies and has some very interesting features on the roadmap.

I recently got stuck into the project myself; as a former core Elgg developer myself, it seemed an obvious platform to look at when I wanted to PRISM break my social media activity, and move to a POSSE modal for Facebook and Twitter etc. It also forms the base to a couple of cool client projects that I’m working on.

The project is really starting to pick up speed, and you can see my social stream over at

Ben has done a really nice job at building the initial platform, and I can’t wait to see how the project develops!
