I hope you’ll excuse the self-publicity, but I just wanted to let people know I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to speak at two great events coming up in the next few weeks.
The first is the South West edition of Local by Social. The theme of the event is “Apps for Communities”, exploring how Apps and Widgets can be used to bring real benefits to citizens. I’m going to be talking about the use of location-based social media in social care, drawing on a post I wrote here a few weeks ago.
The second is a workshop at NCVO’s 2011 Annual Conference on Civil Society 2.0. This draws on some Open Data stuff we’ve been doing at ecdp over the last few months, plus a few posts here on Open Data and the voluntary sector.
For both, I’m hoping to post and share a few thoughts here to shape what to cover at the events, and hope anyone with an interest in these areas will also share their thoughts/ideas in the comments. It goes without saying I’ll share any slides/copies of the talks.
