Bridget nominated as Internet Hero

7 July, 2010 at 7:45 pm 3 comments

Islington campaigner Bridget Fox has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2010 ISPA Internet Hero award.

The Internet Services Providers’ Association (ISPA UK) has been organising the UK Internet Industry Awards since 1999 to herald the best of the Internet industry and to celebrate innovation and best practice.

The highly-prized Internet Hero award is bestowed upon an organisation or individual who has made a significant contribution to the Internet industry in the past year by the Internet Service Providers Association.

Bridget was nominated for organising a grass roots challenge to the Digital Economy Bill, with its draconian measures on web-blocking and disconnection. Her campaign led to a change in Liberal Democrat party policy, with her party’s MPs voting against the Bill at its third reading.

“The announcement of the Internet Hero and Internet Villain are always eagerly anticipated, and are the highlights of the ISPA award ceremony,” said Nicholas Lansman, ISPA Secretary General. “The Internet, now a major accelerator of the UK economy, has become increasingly a matter of public debate. It is therefore more important than ever to recognise those who have really made a positive impact on this sector.”

The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony hosted at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square on Thursday 8th July.

In Islington South & Finsbury

Bar chart: it's Lib Dem or Labour here

The Conservatives, Greens and UKIP can't win in Islington South. Voting for them will just help Labour to win again. Only the Lib Dems can beat Labour in our area.
