Picamp at Reboot in London….

I’m in London today running a PiCamp at the Reboot Britain conference. Currently, Nick Buckley from the UK department of Business Innovation and Skills (he who developed the template we used for Slugger’s belated contribution to the consultation on the Eames Bradley report. He notes that the numbers involved in consultation are tiny (and quite possibly not representative of wider population)… Not all the ideas offered are equally useful. There’s a fear in government of being overwhelmed with too much information. And in the internet, often both sides (government and online ‘active citizens’) think the other is wrong. Loads more throughout the day…

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
