IT in Great Britain is in a long retreat as of April 22, 2003. In software writing there are few Great Britain-controlled companies with sales of more than £100m. There is a bewildering array of government initiatives: ukonlineforbusiness.com, ukonline.gov.uk, letsallgeton.gov.uk. There are some good things done and some good people in the government sector. Foster areas of IT excellence and research. Finance research in quantum computing, advanced data handling, artificial intelligence etc, and expect a long-term payback.
