I was one of eight support speakers to Jimmy Wales opening remarks yesterday afternoon at London House (City Hall).
** it was an outrage that Whitehall had overspent by £79 billion in 15 years over computer and data contracts yet no-one has resigned or been held to account.
** that we have a real shortage of ICT people and therefore will need to import talent in the short-term from India and China but this has been made more difficult by the immigration regulations
** hardly any students were studying ICT
** we needed to import the IIITs post-graduate model from India
** we need to provide a micro finance bank for entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs which reach into our council estates
