The security of the internet, the potential for technology to evolve our lives and the prosperity of human thought. Exploring, seeing the world, learning and enjoying brilliant people and topics.
The internet is probably the most significant asset that we have in our personal lives, the education of the next generation and our businesses. Over it's organic development it has accomplished amazing things and fundamentally redefined how we communicate and innovate. We now take for granted that we can sit on our sofa and with a thin tablet device access the vast majority of mankind's collective knowledge and ideas (whilst complaining it takes four seconds, how unreasonable!). Cyber criminals, state control, the conflict of privacy and security are all themes that we must now move to the conscious agenda for discussion. However, most cyber crime and human harming attacks occur due to basic failures that could have been prevented with a little bit of education. We should spread knowledge of security best practice and demand that quality IT skills take their place alongside Maths, Science and languages in national curriculums the world over. It's our internet, let's keep it clean.
