A Lewisham Blogger’s Challenge?

Nigel is looking for our help.  

He’s been interested in how something like photosynth could be used to give council officers and staff a stronger sense of what needed changing in an area (or what’s going right too!):

I think you could create a syth of a street or an area that could generate a lot of activity. It doesn’t have to be just bad stuff. It could be a synth of somewhere that’s ‘got it right’. It could be a good way to get a local conversation going about how things can be improved.

And he’d like us to think about whether we could create a set of photos to see how it would work.

I’m game how about others?

    Thanks Andrew. The ‘Love Lewisham’ idea is fine for one-off photo reports, and we’ve become pretty good at responding. Photosyth could take the dialogue between residents and public servants to another level. Some of my staff thought we’d get swamped with graffiti reports when we launched LL, but we coped (just!). Let’s see if Lewisham bloggers can pile on some creative pressure with Photosynth!

    my girlfriend has sent stuff to love lewisham a number of times over the last few months and nothing has happened, and no response has been received indicating why nothing has happened, i think it’s a great idea and a great scheme but it’s only as good as your personal experience of it, so asking folk to go up a level when the basic stuff doesn’t seem to be working (at least in this individual case) doesn’t seem to be the best plan of action.

    could well be that this case is an isolated instance although i’ve heard similar stories, so if that is the case would it not be better to get the basics sorted first before over expanding

    (using photosynth also excludes all mac users from participating)
