How does today’s web look like?
“It controls what people see, creates mechanisms for how people interact,” says Berners Lee. “It’s been great, but spying, blocking sites, repurposing people’s content, taking you to the wrong websites — that completely undermines the spirit of helping people create.”
Similar than the inventor of The Web also Jolocom wants to give power back to the users. Other than conventional platforms Jolocom decouples database, application and identity (user profile) from each other using decentralized technologies like Blockchain and Solid to help organize data in a strictly user-centric way.
With a multipurpose app Jolocom is putting personal data back in the control of the person it belongs to. Within the EU fundend project AGILE Jolocom provides the data sharing element that helps the Internet of Things (IoT) to be compliant with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
During the Decentralized Web Summit in San Francisco we were very excited to present Jolocom and AGILE to Tim Burners Lee, Brewster Kahle and Nicolai Greco.
What a moment to be invited into this special circle and to hear: “… Keep up the good work” from Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the World Wide Web. This certainly further stirred our motivation and commitment to help build a truly decentralized app in the spirit of an open web.
