  • World Wide Web founder reveals plan to reinvent the internet

    I don't think the objective is for inrupt to host everyone's data.  Inrupt is the company that is backing the development of Solid - the platform to decentralize the web.   I don't fully understand it all, but from what I gather the objective is to allow users to own their data, while allowing developers to write application that access that data.   The user's data will be owned by the user and can be stored in PODs.   Users can find PODs providers, or set up their own servers to host their PODs.   The users would also have control over who you share your data with (and which sets of data).

    Here is another article I found on the subject:

  • World Wide Web founder reveals plan to reinvent the internet


    "This week, Berners-Lee will launch Inrupt, a startup that he has been building, in stealth mode, for the past nine months. Backed by Glasswing Ventures, its mission is to turbocharge a broader movement afoot, among developers around the world, to decentralize the web and take back power from the forces that have profited from centralizing it. In other words, it’s game on for Facebook, Google, Amazon. For years now, Berners-Lee and other internet activists have been dreaming of a digital utopia where individuals control their own data and the internet remains free and open. But for Berners-Lee, the time for dreaming is over."

    A decentralized internet eh?   I wonder how Richard (Silicon Valley) would feel about that?  :)

    Seriously though, any thoughts on this project (https://solid.inrupt.com/ )?
  • Bob Iger Talks Disney's Streaming Service, 'Roseanne,' James Gunn and a Coming 'Star Wars' "Slowdown


    An interesting interview with Bob Iger.   A couple of things I found interesting:

    How is Marvel going to absorb Fox’s X-Men franchise? Is Kevin Feige going to oversee everything?
    I think it only makes sense. I want to be careful here because of what's been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know. It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn't be two Marvels.
    So Deadpool could become an Avenger?
    Kevin's got a lot of ideas. I'm not suggesting that's one of them. But who knows?

    It looks like Kevin Feige is overseeing Fox's Marvel franchise (X-Men, Fantastic 4, Deadpool).

    Many believe Disney should pump the breaks and not put out a Star Wars movie each year.
    I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made — I take the blame — was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn't mean we're not going to make films. J.J. [Abrams] is busy making [Episode] IX. We have creative entities, including [Game of Thrones creators David] Benioff and [D.B.] Weiss, who are developing sagas of their own, which we haven't been specific about. And we are just at the point where we're going to start making decisions about what comes next after J.J.'s. But I think we're going to be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that.

    It sounds like they will slow down a little bit on pumping out Star Wars films every year?
