    A question for Ruben:

    Do you see, now or in the future, any big player/service in any industry agreeing with the motivations and architecture of Solid and deciding to migrate to it anywhere? Even if it was in a limited context, like just in Flanders.

    Q: A large part of users “addiction” to platforms is due to the services provided for free (well.. at least not directly coming from their pockets). What would be the strategy to encourage these type of users to move their data towards solid pod? e.g., who will pay for these persons’ data pods?
    Frederico Galvão
    @fredgalvao
    @fekaputra I can tell you that part of that can be answered by "data pods as social services provided by the government". There are some initiatives on this area in Europe, where a government (region, city, country) provides a base pod (or the money resource to pay for one). It's a paradigm shift to consider personal data management as a basic service inside the bubble of a citizen's participation.
    Another part of the answer would be to spread the word on the concept, and on the benefits, so that users are encouraged to sign up for pods and take control of their own data. This clearly requires a lot of work on UI/UX to simplify these concepts for the average user, while also having new/old services being written/adapted to work with Solid, and we're unfortunately not there yet.

    @fredgalvao thanks! it will be interesting though for developing countries, where such services are not on the top of the priority

    But I believe a big mental shift will be needed on the user's side, regardless of Solid, to make people believe that "there's no such thing as free lunch", and finally understand that the only simple and good way to solve the terrible incentives is to pay for services.
    @neumarcx can we have a link to the zoom meeting? Will there be more questions answered and/or discussions there?

    agree.. it would be a big shift for these "average" users
