What's new with Known

Stay up to dates with our latest activities and progress.

Thank you!

Thank you to our inaugural members. We're excited to be making the transition to an open collective; the intention is for Known, Inc to be completely wound down by the summer.

Known has powered my blog for 4 years. I write every day - a million words and 14.5k Twitter followers. Known is a huge part of my life.

Happy to contribute to an Indieweb platform with potential to grow! We need alternatives to Wordpress and I believe Known has things right

About

Known allows any number of users to post to a shared site with blog posts, status updates, photographs, and more.

Its robust open source framework can be used to build fully-fledged community sites, or a blog for a single user. It's up to you.

Known is compatible with most shared web hosts. It can also run on cloud infrastructure, taking advantage of services like S3 and ElasticSearch.
