‘Free for everyone’: The past, present and future of the internet
We are on the cusp of a new internet era where individuals will have access to sophisticated technology, can store, share and control their own personal data. The internet will never truly be ‘free’ but the direction we are heading in pays tribute to the original ethos, a place where everyone can share data as equals. Whilst challenges to achieve this exist, government should embrace this opportunity.
I believe that this will foster new markets, business models and new uses of data that support and empower individuals. The playing field will once again be level.
