We’re making something.
It’s a place. A place where people like us, people who “get” this social media, blogging, podcasting, videoblogging, online social networking stuff and are using it in interesting ways to make things happen in businesses, government and in our own lives.
There are places like this in other parts of the world, but we want one in our town – London. So we’re making it.
Althought it’s been rolling round in my head for a while, I first wrote about it in August 2007. Read that. Not much has changed to affect that original vision.
I set up a facebook group and a couple of hundred people joined.
I spoke at Web2Open, BarCampLondon3 and BarCampUKGovWeb
I settled on prototyping as a method of developing what we wanted to achieve.
We had an initial meeting.
We had a flashmob.
We did a couple of mornings at the Coach & Horses in Soho.
At the last one, I realised that we needed to be a bit more serious about our online presence. While I’m not very good at serious, this blog is intended to be the focal point for stuff. You should be able to get pointers to where we’re doing things from here. Other good places to look right now are the wiki, the google group and the flickr group but there’ll no doubt be more as we go along.
