When I qualified as an engineer, the Internet was in its infancy. Over the last 10 years, I have been fortunate to find my true passion, which is the promotion of Internet and web technologies in the education, youth, community and business sectors. I believe that ICTs offer vital tools for learning, personal, community, business and economic growth. I believe strongly in the need for Internet literacy programmes that address questions like how the Internet works, what different domain names mean, laws online, better searching, organising online information. However, more than this, I feel we need to be proactively encouraging a better understanding of new technologies including web 2.0 type technologies like blogging, social networks, RSS feeds, podcasting, social bookmarks, web-based office type applications and voip solutions like Skype, which provide us with newer ways of connecting to the world, learning, networking, socialising, accessing specialised communities, entertainment and information. Only then will we create a vibrant knowledge economy. I am a member of two Welsh Assembly Government advisory groups (one for a large community programme on digital inclusion) as well as the Institute of Engineering and Technology. In April 2006, I was appointed a member of the BBC’s Broadcasting (now Audience) Council for Wales.
