Andrei Sambra & Nicola Greco
Data ownership in the age of silos
State of the art (cloud)
Different APIs everywhere
Zero control over data
What the heck is identity?
Control over data
What is different?
Apps no longer "run" on dedicated servers
Apps no longer require authentication
Generic, REST API for managing data (LDP)
No application logic in the server!
Modular design - decouple everything
Build generic platforms & tools
Reshare data between applications
How does it work?
Solid offers decentralized:
Generic (and RESTful) data API
Everything revolves around URIs
(especially for identity)
Load the application
Multiple data sources
App fetches data from individual sources
App providers are kept out of the loop!
What do we stand to gain?
Keep your social graph
Ability to add new features
Governance & Democracy
New business models
