Solid: new web startup by Tim Berners-Lee

The Inventor of the World Wide Web Plans to Start a New Internet to Take on Google and Facebook

"Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, is launching a startup that seeks to rival Facebook, Amazon and Google.

The technology legend’s latest project, Inrupt, is a company that builds off of Berners-Lee’s open source platform Solid. Solid allows users to choose where their data is stored and what people are allowed to have access to what information.

In an exclusive interview with Fast Company, Berners-Lee joked that the intent behind Inrupt is “world domination."

One Small Step for the Web… – Tim Berners-Lee – Medium

"Solid changes the current model where users have to hand over personal data to digital giants in exchange for perceived value. As we’ve all discovered, this hasn’t been in our best interests. Solid is how we evolve the web in order to restore balance — by giving every one of us complete control over data, personal or not, in a revolutionary way."

"Re-decentralizing the web"

GitHub - solid/solid: Solid - Re-decentralizing the web (project directory)

"Solid (derived from "social linked data") is a proposed set of conventions and tools for building decentralized Web applications based on Linked Data principles. Solid is modular and extensible. It relies as much as possible on existing W3C standards and protocols."

Exclusive: Tim Berners-Lee tells us his radical new plan to upend the WWW

"The difference here is that, on Solid, all the information is under his control. Every bit of data he creates or adds on Solid exists within a Solid pod–which is an acronym for personal online data store. These pods are what give Solid users control over their applications and information on the web. Anyone using the platform will get a Solid identity and Solid pod. This is how people, Berners-Lee says, will take back the power of the web from corporations."
