  1. Hi everyone, just to expand a bit on the Digital Britain aspect of the CSMC meet-up:

    There is an opportunity for people working within the tech/web/digital industry in the UK to provide feedback on the Government’s interim Digital Britain report, which sets out government strategy for this country’s digital future.

    The final version of the report will be published in the summer, and even though the official feedback date has passed, unofficially there is still time to comment and maybe influence government policy in this area.

    Over the next 10 days or so there are informal ‘unconference’ events taking place all round the country to gather feedback on the report. More details can be found here http://digitalbritainunconference.wordpress.com/.

    The full version of the report can be found at http://www.culture.gov.uk/images/publications/digital_britain_interimreportjan09.pdf (PDF – 1.5MB) .

    Some of the things we might want to comment about include:

    – ways to help grow Cornwall’s digital economy
    – how to ensure that people in the county (from school pupils to the elderly) are able to learn the digital skills that will help them do everything from finding a good job locally to setting up a business to overcoming loneliness to shopping online.

    As Aren says it’ll just be an informal discussion and if any ideas come out of it – or if you already have ideas – I can write them up after the event and submit them as the feedback from Cornwall.

    Look forward to seeing you on the 12th – and do let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.

    Fiona
