We asked the opinion of the people on this site and a few Gallomanor friends in local government and the response was strongly in favour of civicsurf.
We’ve even started developing a logo and soon this website will transfer to www.civicsurf.org.uk with a fresh new look.
One of the reasons I particularly liked civicsurf was that it gives a label to something important that was previously undefined. civicsurf is the aggregate of online local information about a town or area. It is comprised of blogs, sites such as fixmystreet.com, local press and public bodies. In essence the civicsurf is like a public meeting occurring online all day everyday. Our project will inspire civic leaders to get involved in that meeting, those conversations through contributing and hopefully leading.
