Euro leaders have their fingers on the pulse

“Most of the recent successes on the internet – like Google, eBay, Amazon and Facebook – were not created in Europe,” the European Commission said this week.

Another statement on behalf of the bleeding obvious.

So what are you going to do about it EU? Ah yes, a 40-page strategy document detailing what’s wrong.

It will be launched at the end of this month and reportedly will blame “a piecemeal market” across the 27 EU countries, lack of compatibility between technologies, increasing amounts of cyber crime; low funding for high-speed broadband, “Europeans’ weak IT skills”… and so it goes on…

Europeans’ weak IT skills?

Well, after they’ve sorted all that out we’ll be in a position to see the launch of the internet’s Next Big Thing right here in Europe.

I won’t hold my breath.

Ps. And yes, I did have a nice long weekend thank you very much.
