I've noticed that LinkedIn is awash with forums and networks talking about issues that are related to digital inclusion. I'm a member of several useful groups and hope to find more. For now, I thought it would be good to share some of the articles and discussions that I've looked at recently.

Sorry if the posting looks a bit odd - I sometimes struggle with posting links on this site, having first put them in Word and don't know how to get everything the same font on here.
