An update on social reporting, including support from BIG

Social Reporter

I hope to see a blossoming of new structures – including a much more vibrant freelance or indie culture – but the danger is that the major media organisations will cream off the popular market and won’t invest in the rest – as they used to do – leaving niches such as the Economist, or public bodies such as the BBC to dominate in glorious isolation.

Caroline Overington was adamant – well actually she was channelling James Murdoch’s rant over the BBC.

How about celebrating the 20 year history of community networking and hyperlocal

Social Reporter

Although Communities Online didn’t survive as a network, I think it helped people explore what the Internet might mean to local communities, and to share experience in experimenting with different approaches before the days of blogs and other social media. What’s perhaps most interesting is the sort of models for Community Internet we envisaged then … as expressed in a Manifesto which the BBC helped promote at the time.

Community vs. Social Network - Lithosphere Community

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Due to the multifaceted lifestyle of modern living, any individual is often a part of many different communities. For example, a geographical community, say a town, may contain sub-communities living in different parts of the town that are connected by a finer geographical granularity. But at the same time, the same town may contain several different ethnic communities that are connected by the ethnicity. They are definitely valuable and offers a different perspective.

A BBC programme has exposed appalling maltreatment in a care home and led to arrests.

The tone is not much different to what we are accustomed to from Westminster and many of our town halls: I know best, I have the power, you are young and enthusiastic, jolly well done in that respect, and it's nice to think about change, gosh yes quite right, but not just now. One BBC correspondent said of the people in Tahrir Square, 'This is the twitter generation, they know what's going on.' The other day I wrote a little about arrogance and power.
