For some reason, even though online dating has become so accepted it's practically blasé, people can still often be dismissive of friendships forged online, as if they're somehow less valuable or meaningful than friendships that stemmed from working on the till opposite someone at Tesco 15 years ago.

Saturday mornings for me are often the hardest, especially when you have no weekend plans. That easy conversation you get having someone around is something I miss. Having to make plans to see people can get expensive, people are busy. Loneliness happens.

Networking is still left off the syllabus at our schools and universities. I gave a talk to 40 undergraduate students from the Netherlands recently. Speaking to them before the presentations, very few of them were aware of networking, other than perhaps as some concept that they had been told would be important to them.

A virtualised workspace empowers employees with a choice; a choice to strike a better work-life balance as they can work from anywhere, anytime, with any device.

While unpaid internships certainly present a big problem for socially mobile students, it would be wrong to dismiss the benefits that internships can provide; internships are a mutually beneficial exercise, especially when the employer makes them meaningful, and the intern learns and develops their skills (not in tea-making for varying tastes, of course).

25 years ago today, the Berlin Wall - a physical construction dividing a nation between two ideologies - came down. Not by bomb, not by fiat, but by hundreds of activists, emboldened by global public opinion, physically dismantling it brick-by-brick in the face of the same guards who only months before would have shot to kill.

'Generation Y' has been the focus for many years as those born in the 1980s and early 90s have entered the workforce, bringing with them new demands and ways of working. Now however, attention is turning to a still younger group that is soon to come of age: Generation Z.

Around 70% of women with qualifications in science, engineering and technology (STEM) leave their chosen profession, not to return... 8% of British engineers and 4% of engineering apprentices are women. Quite simply, the UK economy needs more engineers and we cannot meet the demand without increasing the numbers of women.

The upcoming Football World Cup in Brazil is a fantastic example of how our consumption of both data and content is changing. Major sporting events such as the World Cup and the Olympics are quickly becoming, first and foremost, digital events.

From Robots to Riches- What the Corporate Tech World Can Learn From Consumer Tech

Adrian Thirkill

I'm from the corporate tech world, by which I mean that we don't make robots that can light barbecues - although a few of our staff might work on such creations in their spare time. I'm part of an organisation which, I think, has all the traits I listed above: great staff, a strong leadership team and a personality.

Since my network provider helpfully reminded me, a couple of weeks ago, that my contract was up for renewal or upgrade, I have been frantically searching thousands of deals, in order to find the best. And I have yet to succeed.

The message from Beijing is clear: the all-important political will that is so evidently present from Downing Street must be met with an enhanced commitment from Britain's business community.

At a macro level, 4G Britain estimates that 125,000 jobs will be safeguarded or created in the UK between now and 2015 and that it will add 0.5% to UK GDP by 2020. For individual businesses, 4G can provide a real competitive edge no matter how crowded their industry.

From health equipment to digital records, Britain has made huge strides over the past few years to modernise and revolutionise the NHS. In the age of austerity, the NHS needs to move with the times and use technology to become leaner and better.

Is there any light at the end of the tunnel for those with an interest in Europe's continuing financial stability? As unlikely as it may sound, help could be at hand in the shape of emerging markets such as Asia, the Middle East and Russia.

Big Data is not simply about gathering large amounts of information, but about assigning meaning to that information as to create a more predictable world.

The Olympics are coming. In the same way that the city of London is building new roads to handle increased traffic, companies must ready their networks to support the increased flow of applications.
