SOLID - Social Linked Data

Solid is an exciting new project led by Prof. Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, taking place at MIT and the Qatar Computing Research Institute. The project aims to radically change the way Web applications work today, resulting in true data ownership as well as improved privacy. Solid (derived from "social linked data") is a proposed set of conventions and tools for building decentralized social applications based on Linked Data principles. Solid is modular and extensible and it relies as much as possible on existing W3C standards and protocols. At a glance, here is what Solid offers: a) True data ownership - Users should have the freedom to choose where their data resides and who is allowed to access it by decoupling content from the application itself; b) Modular design - Because applications are decoupled from the data they produce, users will be able to avoid vendor lock-in by seamlessly switching the apps and personal data storage servers, without losing any data or social connections; c) Reusing existing data - Developers will be able to easily innovate by creating new apps or improving current apps, all while reusing existing data that was created by other apps. This will be added to World Wide Web Reference Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.
