F.A.Q.

  • What are Solid POD´s?

    Solid was created by the inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee. Its mission is to reshape the web as we know it. Solid will foster a new breed of applications with capabilities above and beyond anything that exists today. Everyone in the Solid ecosystem can store any piece of the data they produce wherever they want. So while my comment on your photo is stored in my pod, your photo is stored in your pod. However, this means that we need a way for connecting the data in different pods together, such that the connection between my comment and your photo can be identified.

    Solid connects resources in different pods by representing all data as Linked Data. At its core, Linked Data is really simple: every piece of data gets its own HTTP URL on the Web, and we use those URLs to refer to this data. So if your photo is identified by https://yourpod.solid/photos/beach, then my comment at https://mypod.solid/comments/36756 will link back to that URL. Solid empowers users and organizations to separate their data from the applications that use it. It allows people to look at the same data with different apps at the same time. It opens brand new avenues for creativity, problem-solving, and commerce.
