Web Founder Charts a Solid Future for the Internet

Nearly 30 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web as a new way to distribute information and knowledge. Now in 2018, Berners-Lee is concerned the web he helped to create has become increasingly centralized and puts user information at risk.

On Sept. 28, Berners-Lee announced his new effort to help de-centralize internet information, with an open-source effort known as Solid, which is backed by a new startup called Inrupt.
