Stephen predicted many of the ramifications of the internet in a 14-page national article by John May for the UK Telegraph in 1994. Later in 2000 he stated that the next fundamental change to the internet would not be technical in nature, but when at least three legal instruments could be embedded into the DNA of the Internet we would see, for the first time in human history, the aggregation of our collective demand for consumables and services would match the power of the existing supply structures including the health sector. That day has now come. Stephen can describe what that actually means from a health systems, provider and patient perspective.
