Heather has written extensively on her blog about the UK Online safety bill discussed here. Interesting indeed. Good Glaswegian joke & ends with passionate encouragement of the open web. Very much enjoyed this as I ease back into podcast listening while commuting.
In this episode, Konstantinos and Jillian speak with Heather Burns about the Online Safety Bill in the United Kingdom. The Bill, which has been promoted as the one to make the UK the safest place to be online, has received significant criticism about the way it undermines human rights as well as important security protocols. Heather elaborates on these issues as well as why she believes the Online Safety Bill is the UK’s "Internet Brexit" moment, why she has called the bill the "Nick Clegg law" and what she believes the future of the UK will be after the passage of the Bill.
