IT Business Net, "Facebook - Have they suddenly seen the Crypto-Light? Or has the light always been on?"

"I'm frustrated to report that Facebook would have been looking into the possible benefits of blockchain, crypto and ICO's for some time, however for several reasons they decided to announce that they would remove ads relating to crypto earlier this year. I was personally quoted saying that this was not a bad thing, purely because anyone being enticed into buying into crypto through a Facebook or Google ad was certainly not a sophisticated investor and for something that is still so embryonic, that is dangerous. However, it's clear now that Facebook didn't do this for the wholesome intentions I was quoted for, instead, it seems to be yet another self-centered play."

People Management, "Could the GDPR spell the end for small recruitment agencies?"

"if you were to ask me if I think the GDPR is a good thing, I would answer yes – it is a giant step toward improving the day-to-day operations of businesses in relation to data. It’s something that, as consumers, we will all benefit from and, because of that, I am certainly in favour of it. However, I feel that its high standards of data protection will pose difficulties for the recruitment industry and slightly unfair challenges for the small recruitment agency, compared to the much larger companies."
