  1. It takes a NETWORK to defeat a NETWORK

    For a long time, people have heard me use the phrase "it takes a NETWORK to defeat a NETWORK". Many believed that this phrase was brought about by a General, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, in 2011. However, it was brought to the public arena a lot sooner and from an event that had influenced my career in Policing and remains to do so, a long time after working in government.

  3. Algorithm Parenting – the computer says “No!”

    Algorithm Parenting – It’s a term I use to describe the excuses used by individuals who lay blame to Electronic Service Providers for the failure to have “algorithms” in place to stop young people from engaging in harmful online behaviour. Yes, there are times that the trust and safety requirements should and are lawfully required to remove, prevent and report illegal content but there are limitations to automation. Algorithms are based on current human behaviour and will be the subject of a readjustment delay to the evolution of human online interaction.
