SLA Europe Webinar – Solid: En økologi af digitalt væsen

SLA Europe was pleased to welcome Teodora Petkova to explore Solid, et spændende web-decentraliseringsprojekt ledet af Professor Tim Berners-Lee, opfinder af World Wide Web.

Hvad hvis vi kunne have alle vores digitale artefakter og optegnelser ét sted, et eget sted? Ikke spredt på tværs af platforme, eller høstes af tredjeparts maskinapplikationer? Forestil dig alle vores data, der lever fredeligt i sit privatliv, alligevel klar til at komme ind i enhver anden offentlig tjeneste, forudsat at vi har brug for det. That’s the aim of Solid, but the project is still in its infancy.

Solid “aims to radically change the way Web applications work today, resulting in true data ownership as well as improved privacy” with the project’s main goal to allow users to have full control of their own data, inklusive adgangskontrol og lagerplacering.

As a philologist fascinated by how our networked lives are changing to the possibilities of the written word, Teodora showcased the impact Solid will have on our digital footprint, the concepts behind the project, its socio-technical implications, including implications for librarians and information professionals as ‘netizens’ (citizens of the internet).

SLA Europes optagelse af webinaret kan også ses nedenfor og også på vores YouTube-kanal. Vi vil også bede medlemmerne om at overveje at lave en velgørende donation til vores valgte velgørenhed, Half Moon Young People's Theatre.
