It is certain that the world has changed dramatically over the past ten years. "What can not be found on Google is not on the Internet," Radoslav Bodó said. "I've been looking for a pajamas with a cap, for example, and I've found the stores in my neighborhood. What was not there, it does not exist for me." The change was also made in e-government, we have a qualified signature, data boxes, Czech Point and other conveniences. "It's a huge shift."

The four eras of digital computing:

① Mainframe (centralised)

② Personal Computing (PC 1.0; decentralised)

③ Web/Cloud (Mainframe 2.0; centralised)

④ Peer Computing (PC 2.0; decentralised)

The PC 2.0 era is what some of us are working to usher in.
