On the off chance that I still have any local readers (or indeed any readers at all). I had the following by email the other day:
SEEKING LOCAL VOLUNTEERS FOR A 3-4 MONTH STUDY. We are a design team from the Interaction Research Studio at Goldsmiths, University of London. We have been working on a variety of digital devices to expose the home’s microclimate – imagine a miniature weather station. Now we would like to lend these devices to you in return for telling us about your experiences of living with them. If you are interested and live in SE4, SE8, SE14, SE23 please respond by April 9th 2011. Contact: Kirsten Boehner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07779.168.516.
