Digital Britain Reports

For the last week I’ve been occupied with a new blog which tracks news coverage in the lead up to publication of Lord Carter’s final Digital Britain report. The report will be published on Tuesday 16th June and announced in Parliament by the new Minister, Ben Bradshaw, in the afternoon.

On Wednesday 17th Lord Carter will present his recommendations in Birmingham at the International Conference Centre and at an Unconference event with liveblogging at Fazeley Studios in Digbeth. I’ll be there.
