Like peas in a Pod

Your Pod is where you store your data. Pods and apps are always separate and compatible meaning you are free to pick and choose and change your mind while still keeping your data.

Solid is a standard

The web was designed to make it possible for information – data – to transfer conveniently no matter where you are or what device you are using. Today data is used as a bargaining chip to lock you in. Solid is a standard that describes how to build storage, apps, and identification in such a way that you can conveniently connect and switch without losing data. If you are interested in the standardisation process, contributions are welcome.
