The Future of the Semantic Web: Prototypes on a Global Distributed Filesystem

Recently, prototypes (in the meaning familiar from programming languages such as Javascript) were (re-)introduced for knowledge representation on the web. However, that work has a very theoretical focus and a more practical system is in demand. In this vision paper we describe how a distributed file system forms a natural habitat for the prototype knowledge representation. In particular, we describe how we envision deployment of Linked Data and Prototype Knowledge bases atop of the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), which has several useful features matching the needs for the prototype system.
