Foxy Baroness’ Website Borked


The one time Government digital tsar, Baroness Martha Lane Fox gave her much hyped Richard Dimbleby lecture last night, unveiling her master plan to “make Britain brilliant at the internet.” The Solution? A proposed brand new public institution called “Dot Everyone” that would tackle the core issues holding back the nation’s digital development: education, women and ethics.

Apparently this new national institution would take charge of Britain’s digital development, stopping big commercial technology platforms shaping our digital lives. Baroness Fox sold her big technology company for £557 million at the height of the dot com bubble…

To spread the Fox’s message to the masses she launched, unfortunately this is what is looked like when people tried to access it last night.


Just what we need, another bloated public sector money drain...

Quote of the Day

Dr Alexander Kogan, the app developer who originally harvested the Facebook data, said…

“I think what Cambridge Analytica has tried to sell is magic and made claims this is incredibly accurate and it tells you everything there is to tell about you. But I think the reality is it’s not that. If you sit down and you really work through the statistics and you think what does a correlation of point three means, those claims quickly fall apart. And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
