Digital Britain

February 1, 2009

Yet again central government demonstrates the lack of “joined-upness” within or across its departments.

The latest tome to hit the shelves is from the Department for Culture Media and Sport entitled “digital britain – interim report“. One of the 20 recommendations is “enhancing the digital delivery of public services”, should somebody tell the Cabinet Office, the Communities & Local Government departments and possibily the Delivery and CIO Councils? I thought the bodies named were the ones involved in coordinating the delivery of public services and there’s no mention of them?

With my home broadband currently running just over dail-up speed I await the universal access, along with the 2Mb to every home, claimed…and at 1.5Mb and 86 pages you need broadband to download it.
