Mobile devices are increasingly being used as both primary & secondary devices to access the Internet. This is not only an exciting and important development, it also exposes the mobile ecosystem to some of the important challenges the Internet is facing from both Governments and special interest groups

Mr. Waterhouse is head of Internet and community stuff at ICT Norway! He has previously worked as Sr. advisor at the Norwegian Consumer Council where is was responsible for ICT and Media… Overall a great guy!
