I started this blog because i am passionate about the potential of ultra local publishing to empower and build communities. In August i put together some slides that made a more or less coherent pitch. And after much cursing at Slideshare (and the Theme i am using here) the slides are at the link below.
There is a lot in common with the proposal from Clare White over at the Ministry of Justice ‘Building Democracy’ competition. She proposes a Social Reporters Network and has set up a wiki to put some flesh on the bones. It seems that Vision On TV are also doing something in this space. There is a good discussion running here, revealing some good work i hadn’t found before. WIll digest and post further.
