Lecture 1: Personal Data Store Interoperability
Personal Data Stores and Personal Cloud servers promise to give humans control over their online personas. By making sure the main copy of our personal data is hosted at a server which is ultimately controlled by the data subject, it becomes less likely that your personal data will be shared without your consent. But how do you share data between the various personal data store and personal platforms, such as Solid, ownCloud, Nextcloud, remoteStorage, etc.?
