Solid

Last updated Jun 7, 2022 Edit Source

Solid is a  specification that lets people store their data securely in decentralized data stores called Pods. Pods are like secure personal web servers for data. When data is stored in someone’s Pod, they control which people and applications can access it.

Pushing for universalization at the data level: just as any website can be viewed on any browser and any internet provider, any data should be accessible by any application under people’s control.

Existing large owners of data wont innovate because they have monopoly over data, new innovators cant enter because they lack data

GDPR technically does all of this, Solid is just technology that ensure it actually happens.

Solid is essentially a glue between HTTP, LDP, and LDN
