Mapping the connected world for the UK

Google UK have launched a collection of business aids  for UK companies aimed at encouraging them to address overseas eCommerce markets

With research by O C & C they reckon the UK overseas eCommerce export market for content, leisure, travel and retail will grow from £13 billion in 2013 to £45 billion by 2020. We reckon that’s a healthy compound annual growth rate approaching 20% pa.

They provide many examples of this growing opportunity.  and note the almost geographic anonymity of global companies quoting a figure of 96% of  people not knowing that was based in the Netherlands and 90% of that figure not caring where they were based!

They also provide 10 country export maps giving an economic overview and a (somewhat complex) seasonality calendar with country holidays and much more besides!

The countries are:

  • Austria
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • USA
  • Canada

We’ll leave you with some glimpses of “The future is now” from their Think event earlier this year.

DbD News from GDS

That’s Digital by Default news from the Government Digital Service

The electoral registration process  went online in June and the results so far look pretty impressive.

From their data over at  since the second week in June we reckon over 1.1 million applications have been received of which a staggering 81% have been digital. Our graphic shows the daily comparisons with, in general, “no data” applying at weekends for the paper forms (which we have simply zeroed).

We’ve had a quick look and it appears to be a remarkably simple system from a user viewpoint

After 10 After Dark @ Tate Britain

From tomorrow night you can participate in the result of the Tate Britain’s new annual ik prize winner’s rather remarkable tour around the gallery conducted by robots. In their words you can, for a short period of time, “take control” of one of the robots and watch the results.

From August 13 through 17 after 10pm BST each night simply visit After Dark at Tate Britain

(Members of the public will be able to log onto on 13, 14, 16, 17 August from 22.00 until 03.00. On 15 August, there is an evening for children to operate the robots at a slightly earlier time of 19.30 until 00.30).

In their words” After Dark has been created by design studio The Workers  (Tommaso Lanza, Ross Cairns and David Di Duca) who were inspired to re-create the experience of being alone in the gallery after dark using digital technology. This online experience invites people all over the world to view Tate Britain’s galleries online at night through four camera-equipped robots roaming the gallery spaces, connecting audiences with art in the BP Walk Through British Art. Live online for five consecutive nights from 13 August, the project will allow the public to view the robots on their journey through the artworks and a number of visitors will be able to remotely control their movements. A first-person, real-time video feed and live commentary will be streamed to all visitors on the After Dark website. This is the first project of its kind in a museum or gallery setting.

The robots are equipped with lights, a camera, sensors and motors allowing them to sneak through the galleries in the dark. An onboard computer streams their vision through the internet in real-time and responds to commands. The Robots have been created in collaboration with RAL Space  (who work alongside the UK Space Agency – UKSA), a world-leading centre for the research and development of space exploration technologies.”

The ik Prize, (in its inauguaral year) named in memory of the philanthropist Irene Kreitman, celebrates creative talent in the digital industry. Supported by the Porter Foundation, the Prize is presented by Tate to a team, company or individual for an original idea that uses the power of digital technology to connect Tate’s collection of 500 years of British Art to a wider audience.

We’ll leave you with their video & don’t forget to visit after 10 after dark on 13-17 August @ Tate Britain:

Will you pass your DQ test?

Ofcom  in connection with the publication today of the eleventh edition of its Communications Market Report (CMR) has included both the results of its research into the Digital Quotient of our population as well as a somewhat shortened test so that you can quickly (3 minutes they claim) come up with your own level.


It consists of 18 questions with a maximum score of about 144 we reckon but to achieve that you will have to use a Smartwatch a 3D printer and glasses!

The overall average at 100 we reckon converts to a percentage of just under 70% and the “with it” 14-15 year olds just under 80%. Everybody passes with even the 75+’s scoring 55%.

We may return to the full UK report at a later stage to comment on some of its 429 pages and the consistently colourful charts

Report links:

All Entrepreneurs are Digital

Accenture  in conjunction with the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance  have undertaken some research using various streams including a survey amongst 1,000 entrepreneurs in the G20 countries undertaken by Harris Interactive in March and April this year with 51 coming from the UK and 164 from the USA.

The reports introductory words are:

“Young entrepreneurs are the driving force behind job creation in the G20 countries, powered by their relentless efforts to innovate and embrace digital technologies: social media, mobile computing, big data, cloud and ‘the internet of things’.

New Accenture research concludes that lifting existing barriers: digital skills shortage, logistics at scale, policy and regulation, access to local markets and access to finance, with the help of large companies and other bridgemakers, could help young entrepreneurs to create 10 million more youth jobs in G20 countries.”

We noticed in particular from the survey stream of the research the importance the UK (and US) young entrepreneurs placed on the collaboration with Social technologies, Customers and other SME’s.

The great extent definition is a “key partner for innovation” and the some extent “some experience of collaboration”

Digital Inclusion – the Figures

Just Economics have in conjunction with BT for their Get it together project had a stab at calculating the social value to individuals of going online. They have calculated figures for new, advanced and professional users.

In their words “Digital inclusion, defined as have the skills, motivation and access to go online … is perceived by many to be extremely valuable, not only to individuals, but also to businesses, the state, and society as a whole. The purpose of this paper is to try to put some figures on what being ‘digitally included’ is worth to the individual, i.e. what difference it makes in someone’s life to go from being offline to online and what value can be placed on that change.”

The constituents of the new user valuation are:

The definition of the differing users is:

GO ON increase our UK digital skills

Following yesterday’s Governmental programme aimed at seeking to reduce digital exclusion by 25% by 2016. GO ON UK today announce what they are doing to help Northern Ireland get connected where they reckon that nearly 25% of the adult population nearly 350,000 “…lack the Basic Online Skills needed to send and receive email, use a search engine, browse the internet and complete online forms. Almost a third of businesses and charities are also missing out.”  It’s what we might call a digital coldspot in the UK!

This digital skills programme which has already succeeded in Liverpool and is well under way in the North East aims to deliver a 25% reduction in the number of people below the Basic Online Skills threshold in 12 months.

GO ON UK have already launched   which is “…aimed at people and organisations who want to inspire and support others to open opportunities online, it’s home to online tools and resources and a map which features over 3,000 UK Wi-Fi hotspots, computer access points and real people wanting to share their digital skills.”
