Once I had OpenBSD running, I installed an IRC client and connected to Freenode. I joined #indieweb to chat about the IndieWeb project[archived]. The project aligns perfectly with my vision for the future of the web, and with the principles on which my blog engine, Nefelibata[archived], is built upon. I'm still digesting their wiki, but in the meantime I already implemented support for webmention[archived].
The next steps will probably be installing Mutt and BitlBee.
