ZDNet reports that Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man credited with inventing the world wide web 28 years ago, launched a new open-source project, called Solid, to put data back in the hands of internet users. In a post for Medium, Berners-Lee writes, “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.”
