. . . technology for a better society
Headstar is an innovative publishing and events company focused on the use of computing, the internet, mobile phones and all forms of digital communications to improve government, democracy and society. We publish two market-leading email newsletters, E-Government Bulletin on the use of ICT to modernise public services ('e-government') and improve democracy ('e-democracy'); and E-Access Bulletin on access to technology by blind people and people with other disabilities. Both publications carry independent news and feature reporting of the highest quality, and are completely free to receive.
We run a series of conferences and events on technology and social issues including Future Democracy; Building Perfect Council Websites (in partnership with the public sector Society of IT Management, Socitm); and e-Access (in partnership with the OneVoice for Accessible ICT Coalition).
Other areas of work include running or helping to run online debates, consultation and discussion; and research and consultancy in all our areas of expertise.
We also work for the Parliamentary IT Committee (PITCOM), a joint Parliamentary and technology industry body, producing their official meeting reports and briefings on key technology policy issues for MPs and Peers.
