As a tech geek with experience on similar projects, and a newbie in Solid, I’ve a question for those of you who have more experience with it.
How does Solid handle the reusability of user data?
Think of a scenario like this: I use Solidbook (a social network) for years as an application and at some point I decide to leave it and switch to a competitor product: Solidgram (another social network) but I wan’t to use all those (or a subset) data I created using Solidbook for years.
Is there anything in the specification that allows such a “change of application provider”? If so, how does Solibook can mark that specific data created through the platform so that Solidgram knows which subset of the data user might want to give access to? (and even ask to)
How about the “connections” I created through Solidbook in addition to posts and images etc? How about the access controls I put in place for those connections with regards to access to my data? (IE not to let your grandpa see your last holiday photos in his summer house!) How about the comments (that actually belong to someone else and even might have its own set of access controls, like not letting your ex see those) on my data?
Or are those simply just gonna become something I can only see through a “solid data browser” and cannot reuse automatically?
Thanks for all answers in advance
