martha lane foxMartha Lane Fox is coming to town to promote the Race Online. What's that I hear you say well it's all about getting people online not some people having a virtual race using connect controllers.

Liverpool has an appalling record for the numnber of people who aren't online or have access to online resources on a daily basis. One of the reasons behind How Why DIY is to encourage people to get online and not be afraid of using technology. See the Liverpool Digital Inclusion Strategy Framework (google doc) for a real lack of ambition.  

Martha is going to have a busy day on 1st November 2011 as she is first at the Liverpool Innovation Park talking about "How can business close the digital divide?" and then at FACT Liverpool for the Roy Stringer Lecture. You can probably still attend both if you are quick enough.
