My blog

So long and thanks for all the fish

Thanks readers, commenters, observers and well-wishers.  I’ve had a great time work-blogging here.  I’ve been doing it for over five years!  I guess that makes this one of the first public sector blogs in the UK – and certainly one of the few which sought to record what we were up to in a national […]

Local by social: social media as an opportunity for local public services

There are a lot of really good, really valid reasons why local government is not always an early adopter when it comes to new technology, like social media.Local government is plenty busy with a lot of other things. Localgovernment has to be careful with public money, so it’s reasonable totake a wait and see attitude…to a point. But there comes a time whenthe weight of evidence is strong enough to take a risk. With socialmedia, I think we’ve just moved to that point. It’s time to…See More

"Stephen Hilton suggests over here that the need for collaboration around climate change may push councils into use of social media - and presumably new approaches to knowledge sharing. Other drivers, opportunities?"

Imagining a connected future: Knowledge Hub Advisory Group

Feeling crafty



I love crafts. I don't do much by way of crafts anymore at home, but I love a good workshop based on the use of brown paper and stickers and coloured bits of paper. The Blue Peter method of facilitation.



Ocasionally you get people (often senior) balking at rolling up their sleeves and gluing pictures on paper. So, it's often best to show one you made earlier, just to set some parameters on it and show that it will be… Continue

A few links

Yesterday Michelle from Cambridge outlined the issue of concerns about the use of free websites - (like Ning). I'm assuming that data security and persistence of the site were some of the concerns. These are valid concerns and one of the things which shift councils toward building "bespoke" sites rather than using almost off the shelf products that are either free or have a low cost "pro version".



I'm not sure if the following links have the answers, but they might… Continue

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena000@yahoo.co.th ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Frank

Hi Ingrid. We met briefly yesterday at the end of the event. After I'd walked off, I immediately thought of something I wanted to speak to you about. We have a few projects which have come though our Innovation Fund which have piloted initiatives with local authorities and are now looking for new Council's to work with. I wondered whether you would be able to advise me at all on how I can help these projects spread the word about what they have done and how they could help local authorities. Happy to discuss in further detail and would appreciate any advice you may have.
