Now Amazon, one of the most visible purveyors of the technology, is facing pressure from another corner as well: its own shareholders. As part of Amazon’s annual meeting in Seattle on Wednesday, investors are voting on whether the tech giant’s aggressive push to spread the surveillance software threatens civil rights — and, as a consequence, the company’s reputation and profits.

I was on leave last week and spent part of it reading Daniel Coyle’s masterfully written book, The Culture Code. Coyle looks at successful teams, be they military outfits, sporting teams, tech giants or gangs of jewel thieves and gets a sense of what makes them better than the rest. One key common theme he identified was the ability to bring everyone at the organisation together by making them feel protected and empowered to drive the organisation’s future success. Fostering such a culture on a national scale in modern Britain will be far from easy. It has been a dark few years for our country as the issue of our membership of the European Union has pitted family members, friends and colleagues against one another in a debate that … [Read more...] about Mark Casci: May’s deal isn’t perfect but we should back for our national unity
