It’s more than the earworm though: 2017 is the year in which I got deeply involved with Solid, and also when the SHACL recommendation for shapes was published. The problem is a very fundamental one: Solid promises the separation of data and apps, so we can choose our apps independently of where we store our data. The apps you choose will likely be different from mine, yet we want to be able to interact with each other’s data. Building such decentralized Linked Data apps necessitates a high level of interoperability, where data written by one app needs to be picked up by another. Rather than relying on the more heavy Semantic Web machinery of ontologies, I believe that shapes are the right way forward—without throwing the added value of links and semantics out of the window. In this post, I will expand on the thinking that emerged from working with Tim Berners-Lee on the Design Issue on Linked Data shapes, and sketch the vast potential of shapes for tackling crucial problems in flexible ways."@en }
