european commission project
In the early 1990s, Kevin started on the Internet and became a “sysop” on a CompuServe forum dealing with teleworking. This led to a four-year project with the European Commission looking at how the emerging Internet technologies could benefit geographically disadvantaged communities – EU speak for those living in the back of beyond.
Kevin believes that the mobile web is going to become the dominant force in the way that people work and that global politics, linked to terrorism and climate change, will force the adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies to ensure business resilience
He has run blogs on technology, cloud computing and BYOD (bring your own device) for many years and his latest blog, The Techsavvy SMB, can be seen here.
