# SuperGlue: reclaim your data - self-hosted websites for everyone
## Pre-alpha-release presentation by Danja Vasiliev, Michael Zeder &
Joscha Jaeger


RevSpace, Den Haag, Tuesday Dec. 10th, 9 p.m.

_SuperGlue_ is a software+hardware system with which everyone can easliy
make and host their own website, gaining complete independence from
Google, Facebook & Company. It even works without a hosting provider and
is completely decentral.

_SuperGlue_ is the successor to [Hotglue](http://www.hotglue.me), a web
service with which people can easily create their own website using
visual tools, and which has mostly been used by artists. SuperGlue will
haven an even more accessible user interface. In addition, it won't work
like a CMS on a central server anymore. Instead, it will generate static
web pages and host them on a mini home server (factually, a router
turned into a web server by the means of alternative Linux firmware).
The whole system will make the design, upload and hosting of a personal
web site so easy that it can be used without any special technical
knowledge.

With this project, we want to help people leave commercial social media
and web service, and make the World Wide Web a truly decentral
do-it-yourself network again. People need to regain ownership of their
own data and creative work, and the web needs to be owned by the people.

SuperGlue is a Free Software/Open Source project commissioned just like
HotGlue) by WORM in Rotterdam. It's also linked to the [Libre Graphics
Research Unit](http://lgru.net/archives/5392). WORM is a venue and
workspace for non-dull sounds, visuals & media, and has included a hack
lab since 2008. Nevertheless, we wanted to present the pre-alpha release
of SuperGlue at RevSpace rather than in our own venue because we need
critical feedback from the hacker community!


Danja Vasiliev is co-founder of the hack lab moddr_ at WORM,
co-developer of the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine, co-author of the Critical
Engineering Manifesto en of the CryptoParty Handbook. He now lives in
Berlin. Michael Zeder & Joscha Jaeger are based in Stuttgart where they
work as media designers associated to Merz Akademie, a design school.


- By the way: On Friday the 13th, WORM will organize a CryptoParty with
Danja in Rotterdam: http://www.worm.org/home/view/event/7872
