Open innovation reporters and a Social App Store are needed to complement local news hubs

On reflection that’s rather presumptuous – so my best idea is a pretty obvious one … look at the assets and skills we have already, and open the process up to those are already bubbling with suggestions, and create some innovative solutions from there.

But it’s true, nonetheless, that anyone can learn to build valuable assets out of their own content. The trick lies in the conversion – from random acts of content to valuable acts of asset creation.

So, my plan is to build a resource here. It’s been a year and a half.

Two reports promote people-led local solutions – Big Lottery Fund strategy and a Locality campaign

Social Reporter

However, I think there is a very valid argument more generally for local contracting, because it it will be increasingly important to make the most of local assets and relationships as public bodies face more cuts. It will work within its means, finding new ways to unlock resources and capture value. That doesn’t work so well if a lot of the resources for local delivery are controlled centrally, and directed to standard formulae.
