A lot can change in 15 years


Commonsense.org is one of many important organisations that aim to ensure that children have every opportunity possible to grow up in a safer world.  Although there is a focus in the US due to their origins, there is a wealth of information and advice for parents worldwide.  With posts on topics from Fortnite to online harassment, their blog is a terrific way to keep up to date with such issues.

As part of their 15th anniversary, they have created a superb timeline that covers important developments in technology in that time, and it includes some fascinating statistics.  The one that caught my eye was that in 2014, the number of mobile devices worldwide surpassed the human population!  It is well worth a look.
