(and something completely different at the end)
A mySociety project
Barcamp London 2
17th February 2007
- Founded in September 2003, with two missions:
- To be a charitable project which builds websites that give people simple, tangible benefits in the civic and community aspects of their lives.
- To teach the public and voluntary sectors, through demonstration, how to most efficiently use the internet to improve lives.
- A mixture of paid people and volunteers
- Two clicks to let your council and your neighbours know that

- Funded by the Department for Constitutional Affairs Innovation Fund,
in partnership with the Young Foundation
- Orignally for two local authorities, but that's more work than national!
- Launched two weeks ago

- And now for something completely different!

- Well, here's an extremely quick look at some of what I did, for the BBC.
It’s all open source, so help, patches, and even bug reports are welcome. :-)
