Make Britain brilliant in the networked world
Llandrillo Library's insight:

"We need a new national institution to lead an ambitious charge - to make us the most digital nation on the planet.

The values of the internet have always been a dialogue between private companies and public bodies. And right now the civic, public, non-commercial side of the equation needs a boost. It needs more weight." 

Do you agree? Who is dictating our rights and are being developed based on learning from mistakes rather than proper future proofing right now?

The advent of connected cars, interactive fridges and Internet-enabled watches brings with it a wealth of possibilities. However, the ways in which the new technology will simplify our daily lives, boost commercial profits and the innumerable life-changing opportunities that it presents must be balanced against the potential for invasion of privacy, data breaches and even misuse.
