I have been in love with the internet since I first encountered it at university in the mid ’90′s. The thing that attracted me and hooked me so deeply was the universality of it all. A bit of coding in Note Pad and some command prompts were all one needed to have equal footing to the rest of the world. Of course there were only a million or so websites at that time.
Scan forward nearly two decades and we are at the stage where online is considered a pre-requisite to full citizenship. Amazing how fast things change. The Digital Inclusion Thoughts project is a partnership project. It’s a blog cataloging reflections and musings on the nature of digital citizenship, what that means in the wider world and how this Nirvana is going to be achieved in this country.
The initial project partnership is between myself and longstanding digital inclusion champion Peter Goodwin. There is a standing offer to guest authors to contribute. The blog is well read. The frequency of the updates is moderated to limit its intrusion into busy reader’s email boxes. Most of the project audience have subscribed to receive new articles straight to their email rather than rely on having to pop along just in case things have been added.
