Anyone working with / have thoughts about Solid? The pro-business language makes me a bit nervous that long-term this could just become another system defined by corporate rent-seeking but the tenet of personal data autonomy sounds nice at least.

@jplebreton i want to see what it actually gets used for before i get too excited. like, is it the sort of thing you could use to build fake twitter?

i can't tell what it is yet, because everything that exists is marketing or specs and i don't have the patience for either

@jplebreton my main thought is that if we're going to move to any new method of web hosting, it should be one of the ones that includes torrent-style hosting sharing on the part of visitors, for the sake of preserving content if the original host disappears, and for alleviating hosting costs if something takes off
