A great speech by Ben Hammersley on technology, society and security: "I’ve been working through the social evolution of these technologies in this humanistic way for a simple reason. I need to make the point that this technology isn’t a removable part of life. It is ever more interwoven both into the practicalities of our lives, as well as our very mindsets."

"It is not just the feral youth of Tottenham who have forgotten they have duties as well as rights. So have the feral rich of Chelsea and Kensington. [...] For them, the repellent Financial Times magazine How to Spend It is a bible.

"Where it comes to social spaces non digital native’s preconceptions are all about their experience or their friend’s experiences: “people use their real identities like I do on Facebook”. It’s a continuum: “I’d never do anything to harm my online identity or reputation”. In my time at MySpace I remember one specific moment when I started to have a revelation about how people younger than me used the site. How they shed their identities, how it was about trying things on for size to see how they fitted. You could see it happen in the stats and in the analysis of the useage of the site and in surveys of users."

Good insight into the events that started the riots in Tottenham: "I am appalled, dismayed and horrified by the level of destruction that took place. I wouldn't defend the indefensible; however I would like to provide an insight into the mindset of someone willing to burn down their own neighbourhood as I believe that on this point, little has changed since the disturbances on Broadwater Farm 26 years ago."
