Stuff I’ve seen June 1st through June 3rd

These are my links for June 1st through June 3rd:

  • UKCOD, parent charity to mySociety is seeking trustees – We are looking for passionate applicants who are keen to give the often substantial time required, generally more than five hours a month. Demands on time can be unpredictable and lumpy and input from trustees can be required outside of board meetings and occasionally on short notice.
  • Birmingham REP deface John Baskerville’s monument | Pete Ashton – “Although our methods of advertising are environmentally friendly and meant to be non-invasive in this particular situation we made a mistake and got it wrong by placing the design where we did. We are sorry for causing offence and in addition to removing the design we have also made a donation to a Birmingham charity as a way of apologising to the local community.

    Thanks to everyone for bringing this matter to our attention.

  • 7 Technologies Shaping the Future of Social Media – Interesting list of hardware and ideas which may shape the future of social media
  • Reboot Britain – Nesta: “Instead of more pessimism, can we really look at how we can punch through the gloom? And in particular, how can we take advantage of the radically networked digital world we now live in to help revive our economy, rebuild our democratic structures and improve public services? Reboot Britain is a major new project, which will take a top-to-bottom look at the challenges we face as a country and the new possibilities that – uniquely – this generation has to overcome them.
