  • AWS is playing chess, Cloudflare is playing Go | 2021-10-18
    But, does Cloudflare gives back control to the user? (like Sandstorm does)

    I think the spiritual successor of Sandstorm is Tim Berners-Lee's Solid that was recently discussed in this thread

    But, while Sandstorm is all about compartmentalizing access to data in a single server, having the document (grain) as its unit, Solid does this with multiple servers (called pods)

  • Kanidm: A simple, secure and fast identity management platform | 2021-10-16
    Making this a Solid Server or starting as a Solid IDP would be pretty valuable:
  • [US/MA] Do we have the right to sell or rent out our personal data to business who collect it?
    Additionally, the original inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, is working on a cool concept project that will hopefully catch on with the general public and remedy this issue a little bit:
  • Interoperable Serendipity | 2021-10-14
  • Going doorless | 2021-10-09
    There are several technical affordances to this at the moment. Local-first or edge apps enable the whole experience to take place in the security of one's own device and can continue offline without internet connection. Zero Data protocols like remoteStorage, Fission, and Solidobviate the need to create accounts (because people bring their own data storage) and also enable apps as swappable lenses—"software is the principles of an experience" (as Steve Jobs might have said) and your data becomes the details. Sharing content via URI fragment stores data in the link itself so that no 3rd-party server is necessary to hold the data (for example, a multi-platform music playlist).

    The Solid Project ( is Tim Berners-Lee's answer to the proliferation of social media and fake online presences. I don't know if The Solid Project would be the place to look or if you'd be more interested in one of the companies that uses their Pod system.
  • Idea: Open, Statically Hosted, Distributed and Connected Job Board | 2021-07-10
    I'm a developer fascinated by the SOLID Project, Linked Data, Activity Pub, etc. everything that aims to explore the web's potential by making it more distributed and more connected.
  • Sites do SNS enviam dados para a Google | 2021-06-25 tem um nome um tanto ou quanto forte por trás.

    > the lack of good, reliable offline storage.

    A good use case for something like Tim Berners-Lee’s Solid idea:

  • It’s time to ditch Chrome
    Though the details and implementations are still being worked out, there are systems in development that allow you to store all of your own data locally in your home and you give permission to other services to use it transiently. Though there'd need to be work done somehow to ensure that data isn't being logged anyway I think limiting how much data companies can hold on to about you is the best way. One such example at the moment is Solid.
