A web where the user has complete control of their data? Sounds Solid, Tim Berners-Lee

Re: Would have been helpful...

Thanks for the summary. As I understand it this is something like a more private version of Facebook, an alternative solution (like Diaspora or Friendica?). But Facebook (or Google+) is not "the web", it's not the only place where the user needs "complete control of their data". What about ads tracking you, Google analysing your search terms, your emails, tracking your location history, Microsoft slurping your data via Windows, Amazon keeping your purchase history, Youtube tracking your comments and viewing history? What about banks, utility companies, online shops, news portals all tracking you, sending you DM via third parties etc. etc.?
