I was looking forward to writing today’s blog post because I had a meeting lined up with Stephen Carter, UK Government Minister for Communications. It was, I’m sure, going to provide me with rich pickings with which to fuel the blog.
Unfortunately this was cancelled at the last minute because the Minister was called into an “urgent cross-Government meeting” to discuss the impending swine flu pandemic.
The meeting was between several members of the ISPA council and Stephen Carter and was arranged for us to put forward an industry view on the Digital Britain Report. These meeting take a long time to organise and with the limited amount of time left now before the Report is due to be completed we will probably have to provide an input in writing.
Strikes me we have enough problems with viruses in this in this industry without introducing another one to slow up our networks:-)
