"Guess I fall into 4 - I'm interested in developing a platform for creative types to be involved, perhaps through creating graphics and text to the front-end of the apps. Icons will be particularly important, as they can make something that…"
"hi Tracey, just one thing stopped me completing the registration form - I don't necessarily want to share my personal address with people I might be willing to lend stuff to. I appreciate you might need it as a security check and backup if…"
"Hi Clare, this looks really useful. We are currently developing our new website at Media Trust and a key feature we want to build in is a way of enabling people to see who's where, and what's going on in terms of events, training and…"
"Hi all, just thought I'd mention, if anyone is interested in involvement with UKGC10 - (UKGovcamp, barcamp)- to take place in January 2010 - there's a Local (local communities) group within that (as well as the separate LocalGov group)"
