UK's "Digital Inclusion Champion" revealed

As part of the Digital Britain report, it's been revealed who will be the country's first "Digital Inclusion Champion", or DIC, presumably.

From 22 June Martha Lane Fox will take up the role for 2 years along with a "Task Force", in order to try and promote "digital inclusion" to the 17 million people who are "digitally excluded".

36-year-old Lane Fox was one of the founders of LastMinute.com, that was later sold for £18 million, and is actively involved in a variety of charities.

Lane-Fox said: "I will use ideas, contacts and experience from both the commercial and charitable sectors to make sure that, with the help of the Task Force, I quickly start to deliver effective projects".
