The past, present, and future of local-first

The past, present, and future of local-first

Slides from a talk given at the Local-First Conference, Berlin, Germany, on 30 May 2024.


We have come a long way since my colleagues and I published the local-first essay five years ago. In this talk I’ll review where the local-first idea came from, where we are now, and what I hope the local-first community can work towards in the future.
