Web Zero, with m-ld

Multi-collaborator editable pages and data based on m-ld's CRDT

With m-ld, we are taking a new look at information, starting from a paradigm of inherently live, shared, decentralised resources built with Conflict-free Replicated Data Types (CRDTs) and the Resource Description Framework (RDF). These information resources can move freely through a world of personal devices and shared infrastructure, as required for their availability to computers and humans, and for their safety from infrastructure failures or untrustworthiness. This project will work on the core capabilities of m-ld and bring them together with a demonstration: a re-democratised version of the read/write Web, with multi-collaborator editable pages and data that can be owned and reliably managed by anyone, backed by universal identifiers, a W3C-standard data representation, and access control; in which no page or dataset is a silo. We call this "Web Zero".
