Tim Berners-Lee Speaks
And the World listens
This is what Tim is saying :
But for all the good we’ve achieved, the web has evolved into an engine of inequity and division, swayed by powerful forces who use it for their own agendas.
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.
Solid is a platform, built using the existing web.
It gives every user a choice about where data is stored, which specific people and groups can access select elements, and which apps you use.
Solid is guided by the principle of “personal empowerment through data” which we believe is fundamental to the success of the next era of the web.
We believe data should empower each of us
With Solid, you will have far more personal agency over data - you decide which apps can access it.
People want to have a web they can trust. People want apps that help them do what they want and need to do - without spying on them. Apps that don’t have an ulterior motive of distracting them with propositions to buy this or that.
The Web Foundation advocates for data rights as part of its mission to advance a free and open web that benefits humanity.
I hope our Policy Makers will sit up and listen to what Tim has to say , even if they could not find time to read my following emails , where I had suggested creation of ,
· Privacy for Sale ……………………………………………[ 26 Aug 2017 ]
· Data Protection without Data Privacy ? ……….[ 08 Jan 2018 ]
· Data Privacy Law : a Pandora’s Box ? ………….[ 15 July 2018 ]
· A Matter of Motive …………………………………………[ 04 Aug 2018 ]
As per my limited understanding of Inrupt , what Tim is suggesting is a creation of,
- a much bigger , world-wide “ Personal Data Repository “
Dear Shri Ravi Shankar Prasadji,
I urge you to invite Tim ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for a personal discussion before finalizing the draft of,
Data Protection Bill
