Thank you from Inrupt for a warm welcome for Solid in Korea
Tim and I are delighted to be spending an eventful and gratifying week in Seoul. It’s truly encouraging to be able to fully appreciate how advanced the understanding and appetite for Solid is here, across government agencies and corporations.
Our trip was spurred by the award to Tim of the Seoul Peace Prize. It was to recognize his development of Solid and his co-founding of Inrupt, in order to course correct the web for the benefit of people all over the world.
We’re enjoying productive discussions with many of the leading government agencies — those charged with putting data to safe and innovative use for the citizens of Korea.
No less encouraging is that appreciation for the benefits of Solid go beyond the halls of government. It’s a pleasure to engage with some of the dozens of MyData-certified corporate operators in Korea. They see the value — to themselves and their customers — of technology that allows people to safely and intentionally share data from the full spectrum of their lives.
As I shared with the MyData Korea Conference a few months ago, we believe Korea sets a great example to other countries in terms of its policy frameworks for personal data. Korea is now also poised to join others as another leader in the adoption of Solid as the technology to deliver the promise of what Tim intended for the Web.
For those across AsiaPac that share our sense of urgency around reconnecting people with their data, I’d encourage you to test Inrupt’s technology via our recently launched Asia Pacific service, or to reach out directly via firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we bring more projects to life, we’ll all experience the web we’ve always deserved.
