Networked City development

I’m currently writing for a new Networked City blog which complements our NWC wiki and NWC forum

Networked City is a loose framework within which people, projects and organisations can learn how to use mapping, network building, data and technology for community and social benefit. We are developing a network and communities of practice.

New Hub for London role to develop civil society networks and civic tech
The Hub for London responsible for developing new systems to support charities, social action groups and community organisations has advertised a post to support and develop networks, and apply digital tech for communication and collaboration. I think it is fair to say that the responsibilities outlined in the recruitment pack reflect many of the ideas developed during the Networked City exploration, in discussion with the Hub Advisory group. That opens up opportunities for collaboration with a range of people and organisations involved in recent events and discussions about mapping and network building.
