A man of right mind must be pleased with the reflection that there is a
great mass of skill and ability under his own roof. He feels stronger and
more independent on this account, all pecuniary advantage out of the
question… yet on men go, from year to year, in a state of wretched
dependence, even when they have all the means of living within themselves,
which is certainly the happiest state of life that anyone can enjoy.
So to give you an idea of how the “digital lot” currently think the “government lot” handle new technology laws, please read the article at the bottom and enjoy the infographic on the “Cookie law mess”. Please download and enjoy 🙂
But it’s no use just complaining about these things, people would like some guidance. So what’s an actionable solution please.
We need a platform that allows,
An OPEN conversation about new technology laws in which lots of people can come together and discuss it, then add date milestones to reach a consensus by.

If we were to skip back 10 years, make a little change. Do as Estonia has been doing (see the attached link) and teach our kids coding, would it be possible HMV and Blockbuster films may survived the competition?
If more of their staff / leadership had learnt to code, they’d have seen what was possible to set themselves up as a more digitally-fronted business.
Jobs wouldn’t have been lost just because they couldn’t compete on a digital front with their rivals, they’d have been made to fight it.
