Web inventor Berners-Lee creates a new privacy first way of dealing with the internet

We live our lives on the internet. That’s because when Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the web, he made it easy for everyone to use it and share information. Fast forward 28-years, and your personal information is controlled largely by major companies such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google. Enough already. Berners-Lee wants to put our data back in our hands.

Berners-Lee wants to do this with a new open-source project: Solid. He’s not the first. People are sick of having their personal data locked in the hands of giant corporations. Adding insult to injury, as one privacy-scandal and security-hole follows another–AppleFacebook, and Google in just the last few weeks–it’s clear you can’t trust them to protect your data.

What to do? Well, with a lot of work you can protect your data. But, those methods leave the fundamental problem of your data resting in untrustworthy third-party hands. Berners-Lee who “was devastated” by recent privacy abuses, decided enough was enough.
