“The Creator of the Internet” spoke about the new global network

Science, technology and technology news

Sir Timothy Berners-Lee, creator of URIs, URLs, HTTP, HTML and the World Wide Web, spoke about his project, the Solid Network. It will have to correct the shortcomings of the modern Internet.

The fact is that over the decades the Internet has become not only a place for the free distribution of information, but also a platform for manipulating and selling personal data. Solid's new project should make the internet better. It is a decentralized network that consists of special storage of personal information PODS (Personal Online Data Stores).

When identifying users, the site will send requests to PODS and receive from it only the data that is really needed. This approach should give users more control over their personal data. According to the idea, each person himself will be able to choose what kind of information, for how long and which site to provide. In addition, security mechanisms will operate at all levels of Solid that will save data from abuse.
