The Solid Ecosystem

Ruben Verborgh

Ghent University – imec

With Solid, we aim to
reshape the relationship
between people, their data,
and the apps they use.

Solid restores choice
on the Web.

Within the walled gardens of social media,
you have to move either data or people.

People choose where they store
every single piece of data they produce.

They can grant apps and people access
to very specific parts of their data.

Separating app and storage competition
drives permissionless innovation.
