Dave’s Digital Digest #2

Welcome back to Dave’s Digital Digest, with more interesting/useful picks from this week’s world wide web, with particular relevance to Life Online, [Open source] and working with children, young people and older people and the internet. There’s been a lot of Creative Commons things this week, as well as the exciting Net Neutrality news in the Dutch parliament, as well as the usual selection of cool and interesting resources the web throws up all the time, it seems like a bumper week of fun!
