I’ll be moving to the US in a few days to begin my fellowship at the University of Washington.
Preparing for my departure has provided me with an opportunity to look back at how the European Union’s use of digital media has evolved over the last couple of years. One of the things I came across when tidying up my office was the open letter that the European Commission’s internet editors and webmasters sent to President Barroso in January 2010. (Thanks to my friend and colleague Dick Nieuwenhuis for keeping our open letter for posterity on his blog!)
Re-reading the letter now, it strikes me that the points we made three years ago are still just as relevant today.
