About[edit | edit source]

This is a wikipage for notes on the Reboot Britain conference.

It's hosted on Appropedia which is a group focussed on using the internet to spread appropriate technology solutions to global problems like hunger, water and sanitation, and public health.

Reboot Reboot Britain[edit | edit source]

Let's actually do a short unconference here and actually get some communication about the real issues.

Issues[edit | edit source]

  • Poverty and the Internet - 10 years form now there will be 2 billion people with broadband internet access but no toilet. This is a huge volatile oncoming issue (cf. Iran) with deep of foreign policy implications. Who's minding the store on this? What can we do to help?
  • Rights, Privacy and Identity Management - should we follow the Estonian model and have the government provide authenticated digital identities? What about the global push to censorship of the internet?
