When attention is the scarcest resource, the challenge that commentators face isn't to be right. It's to be seen. Simply to be and remain visible We've only just begun to realise what this is going to do to our political culture. Everything we've seen is just the beginning

Wow. When you get Bibi AND Netanyahu working together, well then you really have something special.

I hate that Google has completely destroyed those long, satisfying, heated arguments around a simple point of fact which neither person is quite right about. Now people fact-check whatever I'm saying in real-time and where's the fun in that.

This undertaking, the 'BBC Box', is one of *the* most interesting attempts to use technology to give people more control of their data Simply put - it's a box that stores your personal data. Crucially, analysis is done locally, without the data leaving

For all you researchers out there, this is an incredibly helpful overview of all the tools available to collect and research those massive, confusing, messy but sometimes incredibly important datasets available from social media.

True but there’s a huge amount of editors’ picks and ‘games we love’ that I think hugely determine those best seller lists

The most powerful cultural critics we never hear from? The editors of the Apps store. Gaming is bigger than the film and music industry combined, and they direct vast torrents of attention to consume this kind of culture.

We do NOT have to do politics like this. Look what is bloody happening in Taiwan. There are a million different ways to make decisions now which do not involve shouting matches on the television following by half of the country feeling betrayed.

I just cannot stop thinking about this utterly insane poll result by YouGov of the constituency who are going to select the next Prime Minister.

Does anyone remember the horror of making something ‘public’ before Twitter? I remember layers of sign-off for press release, last minute re-edits and a nervous stomach feeling as it went out. Now we’re all basically sending dozens of press releases, instantly, daily.

This is big. What worries me is that all the activity you see are states scrambling to project force and power into and through the digital world. The real question is how do we de-escalate? If warfare is digital, what does peacekeeping look like?
