In another first for the Malmo09 First popular unConference on eGovernment, Britain’s most senior official responsible for ICTs addresses the people of Europe via video Twitter.

In his quest for a lingua franca he flirts with his fluent Farsi but, in an unexpected and courageous move, chooses to express himself in contempory Swedish. Exemplying the immaculate courtesy in which high-ranking British officials excel, he thanks Andreas and the Garaget team, and Magnus and the Swedish government for the warm welcome extended to all who attended the highly successful unConference.
