Friday Digital, Media & Technology – Google, Mr Beast & Digital Regulation

Here are a few things that you may have missed in digital, media & technology this week.

These were prepared listening to Oasis – (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? on vinyl, the better way to hear the guitars.

Some news from me: one of my long term clients has asked me (repeatedly) to join their business and following some discussions before Easter, I have accepted a role as Senior Legal Counsel & Privacy Officer. It’s a global role with a listed financial services company and I’ll share more on that soon.

That means the Westbright Law ride will end. Aside from wrapping up some existing client work, I’m not taking on any new client work from today.

It leaves me to say this: thank you for your support, the work you gave me, the notes of encouragement, opening doors for me and generally being amazing. Thank you.

This newsletter is best enjoyed with a coffee… or whatever your choice. For me, today, a quiet glass of champagne and a nod to the next season.
