For a long, long time I’ve wanted to have a platform where I could store my own data wherever I want, share the data and allow applications to access it while retaining full control of who can access what. For years I’ve wanted to build such a service myself, but I’ve never got anywhere far with it.

But now, for the first time, there is a promising solution coming up. From the father of World Wide Web itself, Sir Tim Berner’s Lee: Solid.

I’ve only briefly looked at the docs, but the idea looks just like I want. I need to look at the implementation some day.
