Web; a social machine

Architecture of the Web

Three architectural bases of the Web:

anyone being (technically) allowed to say anything about anything

Freedom of Expression

Decentralisation

Interoperability

Universal Access

Social

Scientific Communication

Forces
Actor
Content
Accessibility
Availability
Functions
Registration
Awareness
Certification
Archiving

Typical centralised and decentralised architectures

A definition for decentralisation

Decentralized system
A distributed system in which multiple authorities control different components and no single authority is fully trusted by all others.

Myths.. Assumptions.. Reality..

6 o'clock news at 11:

Decentralised != Interoperable (based on open consensus?)

Open != Free, Inclusive.. (what are the constraints?)

Trends != “the right way”(tm) (beware of marketing)

Registration does not entail third-party control

Systems... want to control your identity and data.

Open, interoperable, Web-centric interfaces

Couldn’t care less whether infrastructure is operated using open source, commercial, whatever software. It’s about whether the infrastructure components provide open, interoperable, web-centric interfaces.

Principles

Data on the Web should not be locked in to particular systems or be only readable by the applications which created it. Users should be free to switch between applications and share data between them.

W3C Linked Data Notifications design principles

Applications generate notifications about activities, interactions, and new information, which may be presented to the user or processed further.

W3C ActivityPub protocol

Decentralized social networking protocol based upon the Activity Streams 2.0 data format.

Social Linked Data (Solid)

A simple graph:

ORCID profile extension

ORCID profile extension

dokieli features (Read-Write Web)

a client-side editor for decentralised article publishing, annotations and social interactions.

dokieli features (standards)

Human and machine-readable information units.

dokieli share + notification

dokieli annotation + personal storage + notification

dokieli citation

Linked Open Research Cloud

Notifications about scholarly activities (articles, annotations, citations..)
