Establishing a “Permanent Web,” as it’s being called, was a key topic of discussion for the new group of collaborators at the recent Decentralized Web Summit, where the group envisioned a world with a web that will one day both archive and back itself up automatically.
Writes Wired:“Unlike the early web, the web of today isn’t just a collection of static HTML files. It’s a rich network of interconnected applications like Facebook and Twitter and Slack that are constantly changing. A truly decentralized web will need ways not just to back up pages but applications and data as well.
The goal: to make the web “resilient to the sands of time.”
