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 empowers users and organizations to separate their data from the applications that use it. Solid allows people to look at the same data with different apps at the same time. It gives user a degree of control over who can write what. User decides to give permissions - what can individuals/apps do to the data. To define permissions we need to have a system for identity - a way of uniquely confirming that an individual is who they purport to be.

Solid has been one of the top trending repos on Github in previous months. Let's meet together to collaborate on this open source technology.
