Sources of Project Funding?

Many "Big Tech" companies are struggling
with PR concerns over privacy and security - many
of which are the result of failure to explain
commercial and technical strategies leading
to the questioning of their motives and
potential abuse of market dominance.

The bbb2022 project is an opportunity for companies dealing with these issues to participate and explain
their ideas and intentions with fast evolving
wireless communication technologies.  



Being realistic about money is crucial, but I want to aim high with an ambitious framework of ideas including an event HQ featuring a (permanent) showcase of the entire gamut of broadcast and communications, supported and sponsored by companies from across the spectrum, who could sponsor display areas to showcase their heritage and the timeline evolution towards their latest wares.

When approaching the Lottery, there are various tales that give hope that a properly presented and costed project - bursting with local and national social and commercial benefits - will be treated favourably.

We can meet those objectives without much difficulty – and this event deserves a much bigger ambition than lottery funding alone. The government support for the 2022 festival holds out further hope. Or does it?  Life is probably too short to try and deal with politicians and the  many who have already gathered around the £120m trough

The opportunities and benefits to sponsors from "big tech" can be a lot more commercially attractive without being weighed down with the complications of politically filtered funding.




The UK's share of the €8bn  fines imposed by the EU on Google for anticompetitive practises must not be lost into EU funds and used to pay Bureaucrat pensions - it is a windfall and must be put to work in the very markets and areas that have been steam-rollered by companies like Google who have been funded by the more imaginative capital markets then we have in Europe. The UK's share of of the fine would get this project moving very usefully.
