IMPORTANT: Solid is a developing technology and still at a research / experimental stage. Therefore, if you have a Pod on our platform, please do not make that your only point of storage for vital data.

UPDATE: Inrupt are no longer hosting a pod browser. We are activley seeking alternatives. Meanwhile, we are directing the 'Go to My Pod' button to the local, built-in, pod manager software called Mashlib. It is not especially user friendly, but provides the functionality to manage your Pod, while we seek an alternative interface. Note: Mashlib will require a separate login, just as the Inrupt Pod Browser did. Click to view additional instructions.

This site is an instance of a Solid platform. 'Solid is a technology for organizing data, applications, and identities on the web'. The knowledge Media at the Open University is currently conducting research into using Solid in a number of senarios.

'Solid is a specification that lets people store their data securely in decentralized data stores called Pods. Pods are like secure personal web servers for data. When data is stored in someone's Pod, they control which people and applications can access it.' For more infromation about the concepts around Solid please visit The Solid Project Website
