These days, it’s a rare week that passes without the publication of some or other report warning of the dangers of the internet: whether it be the threat of terrorism, government surveillance or the mind-altering menace of online addiction. But Martha Lane Fox or, as she’s known in SW1, Baroness Lane-Fox of Soho (hyphens are strictly enforced at the House of Lords) has a very different message to convey.
