Small Technology is everyday tools for everyday people designed to increase human welfare, not corporate profits.

Principles of small technology:

  1. easy to use
  2. personal
  3. private by default
  4. share alike
  5. peer-to-peer
  6. interoperable
  7. zero knowledge
  8. non-commercial
  9. non-colonial
  10. inclusive

Thoughts: not sure I agree with how they say that the small web is single-tenant. Collaboration is important! We use the web not because its easy to own our stuff, but because it should be easy to do stuff with others.
