A digital public space is Britain’s missing national institution — A cynic might say that we have the internet we deserve. We were promised a democratic platform for change, for equality, for collaboration, yet are faced with a reality of weary cynicism, as author Charles Leadbeater wrote last summer, and an assumption that we cannot trust any organisation with our personal data.

Do we have the right to be forgotten online? — This week on the podcast presented by Aleks Krotoski we are joined by the Guardian's head of technology Jemima Kiss and a new addition to the tech team, Julia Powles who is a researcher in law and technology at the University of Cambridge.

We need an internet that leaves space in our heads to enjoy creative peace — I was sitting on my own in the room I had for the week, looking out over a steep Spanish hillside of almond blossom and holm oak and olive trees. It was sunny but cold, and I sat at the table with a large cup of tea and a blanket over my legs.

Just a Minute - Medium — Media criticism when everyone is a critic Greetings, earthlings. We are writing to you from a distant planet called Medialand, a meta place where people write about people who write about what people are writing about. It can be a silly place, but an endlessly interesting one that occasionally has profound effects on the world.

The web has stolen my creativity. I need the time and space to think … — I have an admission. A declaration, maybe. I've had to step off the world for a few weeks. It's all spinning too fast, and there's no place to rest, no island, no solace, nowhere to spare a few hours passed out between a battle to fall asleep and being woken again long before dawn by a tornado child.

IFTTT: ' We're building an intelligence layer for the internet of things' — Could 2015 be the year that IFTTT goes mainstream? IFTTT, or If This Then That, has become part of the internet furniture for many in the tech community, becoming the default way to connect one internet service to another.

Sony hack: sacked employees could be to blame, researchers claim — Security experts investigating the devastating hack against Sony Pictures appear to be moving away from the theory that the attack was a carried out by North Korea, focusing instead on disgruntled former employees of the firm.

Xbox Live back up and running after Christmas hack — Millions of people were able to use their games consoles again on Boxing Day after Microsoft overcame an apparent cyber-attack and restored its Xbox Live platform. But customers on the Sony PlayStation network continued to have problems with its services following a parallel attack.

Xbox live and PSN attack: Christmas ruined for millions of gamers — Millions of people could not use their games consoles for a second day as disruption on the Xbox Live and Sony Playstation networks continued after an apparent cyber-attack. A group calling itself Lizard Squad claimed responsibility for bringing down both networks on Christmas Eve, which could have affected nearly 160 million gamers.

The top 10 tech and digital moments in 2014 — In our final show of the year, Leigh Alexander is joined by Jemima Kiss, Alex Hern, Elena Cresci, Keith Stuart and Samuel Gibbs to discuss the 10 biggest moments in tech and digital in 2014.
