As I have worked with others in our community, I have recognised the same look of confusion I had when I first started. Secondly, it is clear there is a lot of general confusion around this topic, and I think it is important to provide some clarity about the general concepts. This is a new area for us as a company, so it is OK for there to be some confusion at this point. But that will need to change over…Read More
