“At this time of national rejoicing, one sector remains curiously silent: information technology.

The Windsors, like many of their historical antecedents, have been heavily involved with the cutting edge of many technologies – just look at Charles I – and while the public might just note the odd website here, the occasional Twitter feed there, there are many other stories to be told.”
