About

Indizr is a website about Web 3.0, defined loosely as anything that helps decentralize people's access to digital information. For example:

  • Blockchain
  • Semantic Web
  • Containerization
  • Open Source
  • Linux

Indizr is a personal project by Peter A. McKay, a consultant, entrepreneur, and hacker who's also a former prize-winning reporter for the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post. He developed an interest in Web 3.0 through his experience seeing news organizations fall prey to an increasingly concentrated oligarchy of big tech companies. This led him to co-found a digital media startup upon leaving the Journal and later to work as a consultant for companies in blockchain, healthcare, and other industries.

Indizr is dedicated to the idea that the real solution to market concentration in tech isn't to get oligarch-sized companies to act better; it's for the rest of us to purposefully set about making the world less reliant on them, while we still can. This process should also naturally lead us to lift up a bunch of upstart products and companies, which is really what capitalism and innovation are supposed to be about, no?
