You don’t have free rein to make a fool of yourself on the web

Posted on May 24, 2016

Earlier this year, I wrote an article defending satire on social media, arguing that sites like Facebook are often a little too trigger happy in removing posts and ‘unpublishing’ pages. That’s not to say that there should be no boundaries you’re expected to adhere to when using social media and the wider internet, and today’s blog is aimed at (more…)

How the internet has changed the way companies name themselves

Britain’s broadband speeds hindering business, says IoD

Posted on March 1, 2016

A group of business leaders have recently challenged the government over broadband speeds, stating that the UK is lagging behind other European countries.

The Institute of Directors (IoD) has recently published a report that appeals for a more ambitious approach to rolling out fibre optic cables across the country.

The paper calls for the government to provide both businesses and households with internet access that reaches speeds of ten Gbps (Gigabits per second) by the year 2030. The current government targets for this is to provide speeds of ten megabits per second by 2020, which is 1,000 times slower than (more…)
