Reflections are only that, reflections, nothing more nothing less. Often these reflections are related to books I read, but occasionally also other things. These are often written very late, very fast,  using notes from my mobile phone, so the grammar and spelling is horrible.

Participated at “Les Assises du Numérique” in Paris

As a preparation for the French presidency of the EU a conference about the digital economy was arranged in France. I was impressed by a presentation by Michèle Pappalardo, from the “Commissaire du développement durable”. She did a very good overview, both the positive and negative potential. She focused on the “98%” (What ICT can do, not the direct effects) and highlighted many of the most important areas. Would be interesting to see if France can ensure that ICT for a low carbon economy becomes a key question during their presidency.
