Hello and welcome to another edition of This Week in Solid!

If you are familiar with this newsletter you can skip directly to updates.

Solid is a standard that describes how to build data storage and applications in such a way that users can conveniently switch between data storage providers and application providers and take the data generated along.

This is a weekly summary of Solid progress.
