Tim Berners-Lee wants to put people in control of their personal data. He has technology and a start-up pursuing that goal. Can he succeed?
Inrupt, the startup from World Wide Web founder Tim Berners-Lee, announced an enterprise version of the Solid privacy platform today, which allows large organizations and governments to build applications that put users in control of their data.
Bruce Schneier has joined a company called Inrupt as Chief of Security Architecture that is working to bring Tim Berners-Lee's distributed data ownership model that is Solid into the mainstream - think of Inrupt basically as the Red Hat of Solid.
