Its been thrown around a lot and if you search for the term public service internet you will click on something from Adrian Hon or Dan Hon. You will see stuff from others like chromatrope and even my own posts in searches. Or good searches will reveal related terms like Digital public space from newspapers like the Guardian and of course straight from Tony Ageh.
But not much from the BBC, so its quite exciting to finally see something more official.
Very proud to be part of a team looking and researching the public service internet #psi

BBC R&D researching the public service internet and looking for partners who share similar values.
Public service broadcasting is broadcasting intended for public benefit rather than to serve purely commercial or government interests, and it is the thing the BBC is best known and most loved for. As a publicly funded, public service organisation, the BBC exists to “inform, educate, and entertain”, and radio and TV broadcasting have been the main methods of reaching the public and delivering this mission for much of the BBC’s history.
Expect lots more about the public service internet in the near future…
