BeLocal imaginings

Kevin Harris reports from the recent BeLocal workshop how he asked groups to play-through ways in which online tools could empower local people and tackle problems: “The potential value of the game was summed up for me in the narrative
developed by one of the groups about their character – a 51-year old
gay formerly married self employed tradesman with no computer skills,
who became the driving force for a locally-grown information
service that addressed exaggerated and stifling perceptions of the fear
of crime”. Longer workshop report here from Carl Haggerty, including more prosaic yet still worthwhile applications.
