As part of Berwins Salon North’s digital series, we’ve asked author, broadcaster and Research Director at the digital Think Tank Demos Carl Miller to talk us through how to use this time to create a healthy information diet. From broadcast news, to social media to search engines – how can each of us use this time to craft ourselves a more meaningful powerful and resilient relationship with technology? Carl talks to Helen Bagnall.
