In a speech today at the EU's annual Digital Agenda Assembly in Brussels, Commissioner Kroes warned leaders to stop treating the Internet as a side issue.

There has been a sea change in how people view the internet "this year, the politics of the Internet came to centre stage.  The Internet matters to citizens, and politicians need to respond."  

Kroes also formally announced, at this halfway-point, a mid-term review of the European Commission's Digital Agenda. She is "not going to change a winning formula," but there will be prioritisation of five areas cloud computing, broadband, security, innovation, and public services.'

 (There are currently seven "pillars" in the Digital Agenda, which contain 101 actions).
