I began this blog back in 2007 when working at www.involve.org.uk on all things public participation related.

These days you can find me both at OteshaUK as chairperson, and at NESTA working as part of the Public Service Innovation Lab, designing, running and learning more about people-powered innovation*.

If you want to keep up to date, you can follow me on twitter @cased.


*What’s ‘people powered innovation?’ Here are a couple of recent examples from NESTA: Neighbourhood Challenge http://nchallenge.wordpress.com/ and  The Big Green Challenge. Please note that views expressed here are entirely my own and not that of my employer.

  1. DEAR Alice ,
    The Internet has transformed how we communicate with the public, but there are still many challenges in making information easy to find. Since you cover web 2.0 in Cased, I thought you might be interested in a study that my nonprofit published this summer about how people find information online. The study covers three groups: non-profit organizations and cities; web designers and firms; and the general public.
    The study was fascinating on a number of levels, and I invite you to read the executive summary or download a PDF of the findings at http://www.idea.org/find-information.html .
    The survey results sparked ideas about tools we could provide that might make finding information online easier. This fall, we will start beta testing a cool new new navigational tool. I don’t have your email, so if you are interested, you can sign up for our beta here: http://www.spicynodes.org/ or to stay abreast of our (very) occasional new projects, you can get our newsletter here: http://www.idea.org/newsletter.html
    Thanks,
    Michael
