Welcome to the Networked City exploration - here's some background
Welcome if you have just joined this discussion list for the Networked City initiative. If you reply to any message, your post will go to everyone subscribed. Any problems email david@.... I've just posted this update on our launch on Wednesday, which also has links to the background.
We had a terrific meeting at Newspeak House earlier this week, which I trailed as the launch of the London Networked City exploration. I wrote previously:
The next steps for Networked City are to plan further events on January 31 and February 22, develop task groups around specific topics, and set up a blog and wiki and other tools.
I'll post more shortly, including signup details for the January 31 event.
Update: event details and signup here
Meanwhile here is the background paper we circulated for the event. It explains the relationship to The Way Ahead initiative in more detail, offers some models for thinking about civil society, and describes how we'll use the fictional but realistic London borough of Slipham as a testbed for new ideas.
We'll be using Slack for detailed organising and task groups, and will have some email options as well. Meanwhile, if you are interested, drop a comment here, email david@... or DM @davidwilcox
Thanks to Matt Scott who led the way on Wednesday, and everyone else who contributed so much energy. We'll be in touch more directly as well.
