Solid in 2023 by Tim Berners-Lee and Jackson Morgan

Presented by Tim Berners-Lee and Jackson Morgan

This talk will detail all the things that are happening with Solid in 2023. We'll go over the large projects, how general users can start using Solid, and how developers can get involved.

You can get a birds-eye view of the protocol and potential from Solid's founder, Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

Tim Berners-Lee
Founder & Project Director, Solid/W3C

Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He wrote the first web client and server in 1990. His specifications of URIs, HTTP and HTML were refined as Web technology spread.

Sir Tim is the Director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which oversees the technical standards development of the Web. Sir Tim is the founder and a Director of the World Wide Web Foundation which was launched in 2009 to coordinate efforts to further the potential of the Web to benefit humanity. He is a Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Computer Science and AI Lab (CSAIL). His research group, the Decentralized Information Group (DIG), works to re-decentralize the Web. He is also a Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Oxford, UK. He is President of and co-founded the Open Data Institute in London. In 2017 Sir Tim was awarded the ACM A.M. Turing Prize, called the "Nobel Prize of Computing” and considered one of the most prestigious awards in Computer Science. Tim is a long time defender of Net Neutrality and the openness of the Web.
