UK tech-czar’s ridiculous, fatuous podcast interview[From UK tech-czar’s ridiculous, fatuous podcast interview — hilarious gag interview – Boing Boing]
Thanks for all the e-mails, good and bad.
I don’t want to use the interview to make any particular points — it was, after all, just meant to be a special podcast to mark the 100th in the series — but clearly it has made one point that was not intended, and that is that there’s something fundamentally undermining public trust in the government’s identity management strategy. I’d argue that its the lack of a clear vision rather the dislike of the current identity cards programme, since (generally speaking) that public are in favour of identity cards. We need a better vision.
These opinions are my own (I think) and are presented solely in my capacity as an interested member of the general public [posted with ecto]
