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

Re: Would have been helpful...

I don't mind Amazon using my purchase history to suggest potentially interesting products to me (when I am on the Amazon website), as that's useful. (All the other third-party tracking spyware I object to massively.)

But, although AWS is a clever thing (and nowadays it seems that most of the web uses it as a back-end (along with a very unhealthy reliance on Google APIs, etc)), part of me does also wonder/worry if Amazon themselves get to sniff all that data that belongs to their AWS customers, and uses it to further profile and track us as individuals?
