Internet Privacy Overseen from a Small Town in Ireland

18 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 17 January 2014

Online privacy is a particularly sensitive topic these days, so does it make sense that the data of a billion people worldwide is supervised from a small town in rural Ireland? Presenter Manuela Saragosa meets the regulator whose job has ballooned since the likes of Facebook and Paypal decided to relocate their operations to the Irish Republic.

Also in the programme, are some people innately more imaginative than others, or do we all have an inner creative being that is screaming to get out? We hear from the Kelly Brothers of design firm Ideo, who have helped shape everything from Apple's first mouse to school canteen layouts in San Francisco.
