Default A "new" World Wide Web - Solid - could be a big upcoming opportunity...

I'm still getting my head around this...

Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the World Wide Web back in 1989, is (along with MIT) the guy behind a "new" privacy-based World Wide Web, called "Solid"... Apparently this week, he will launch Inrupt, which will be a kind of browser for Solid... (Kind of like Mosaic, then Netscape, was the browser for the World Wide Web, for those with long memories!)

What does this mean? Well, why have another internet in the first place?

The WWW has turned into a place where everyone is getting spied on, and your data is being sold. Sometimes your data is not only being sold to corporations, but also to foreign governments. Facebook, Google, Twitter, they're all in on the action. If they can make a buck spying on you and getting your data to sell it, they will.

Solid is designed to preserve your privacy. I think enough people are disgusted by how we've lost control of our own data on the standard World Wide Web, that it could take off...

If so, this could be a BIG opportunity for those who are in on the action early. I for one will be keeping my eyes peeled...

If you have any thoughts on this, please let me know. It's still very early days, but worth keeping an eye on, I believe!

Here's more info...
