What I’ve been reading
by Dave Briggs on June 5, 2011
I find this stuff so that you don’t have to.
- Google’s Chromebook set to transform how we think about computers | Technology | The Observer – “On 15 June, Google will officially take the next step on its road to global domination. From that day onwards, online shoppers will be able to buy the Google Chromebook, a device that the search giant hopes will change the way we think about computers – and in the process rain on the parades of Apple and Microsoft.”
- Open-source is great, let’s explode a couple of myths – Some sensible stuff that’s useful reading for anyone overdosing on the OSS kool-aid.

- Faster Future Campaign – Interesting looking rural broadband project based in King’s Lynn.
- nexters | big ideas. inspiring society. – “Nexters is the big society network’s new programme to support the UK’s best social entrepreneurs.”
- Where technology should be used to improve policy-making, and is not – “what about all the conversations where people share problems, suggestions, even solutions, which do not happen on an e-participation web site, but pop out from online communities where people socialize for reasons that have nothing to do with politics?”
- FibreValley – Fibre Valley – Digital Worth Valley – Interesting new community broadband project in Yorkshire.
- On becoming Executive Director of Digital in the Cabinet Office – The new digital director speaks!
