I decided to install OpenBSD (6.7 was just released!) on an old laptop that I was not using, a Lenovo T420 that's actualy pretty good.
Once I had OpenBSD running, I installed an IRC client and connected to Freenode. I joined #indieweb to chat about the IndieWeb project. The project aligns perfectly with my vision for the future of the web, and with the principles on which my blog engine, Nefelibata, is built upon. I'm still digesting their wiki, but in the meantime I already implemented support for webmention.
The next steps will probably be installing Mutt and BitlBee.
