Our Minister for Digital Engagement’s blog has a stark message:
Globalisation in a connected world did for Woolies. When my son is a teenager, his friends will arrange to meet online and share their music tastes before pressing the ‘buy’ button. They’ll discover the world from their shared trust in favourite web sites.
We are entering an era of profound and irreversible change to the way people choose to live their lives and organise the world around them.
And there isn’t a politician on the planet who is going to stop this.
