Martha Lane Fox Keynote Topics
The digital world is having a mid-life crisis
Has the digital world had a mid-life crisis? What can we do to fix it? Martha Lane-Fox, one of the pioneers of the dot.com revolution looks at the next steps in this fast pace, ever evolving world.
We Need a Movement For Responsible Technology
And we need it now, says Martha Lane Fox, founder and executive chair of DOTeveryone. It's not just about technology, though – it's about how we must tackle, head-on, the biggest changes and challenges that are right around the corner.
The Good, The Bad and The Internet. (What 25 years has taught us)
25 years of the internet, so how's it going? Martha takes us on a roller coaster tour of the internet, from the 'glory' days of dial up, the boom of Lastminute.com to the lows of two crashes - first the stock market, then a car crash that left her in hospital for two years changing her perspective on life and seeing the internet not as a fuel for economic growth but as something much more personal to survive.
She shares her experiences as UK's digital champion, explaining the importance of getting people online - as well as the lack of Government support, with more 'sexy stuff' on the agenda. She reflects on 25 years feeling 'muted' with where the internet has ended up - the same old power players, lack of female representation and a complete lack of privacy where personal data really isn't personal at all.
