A #Fix the Web Campaign

Posted by gailbradbrook on June 30, 2010

Some notes from our June 24th 2010 meeting

Present:
Gail Bradbrook Citizens Online, Leonie Watson Nomensa, Adam Oliver BT, John Lamb Ability, Sal Cooke TechDis, Robin Christopherson AbilityNet, Jeremy Ruston BT, David Cushman 9010,

Aims of the call / meeting:
Develop an action plan basis for a campaign to Fix the Web and contextualize it- how will we take it forwards?

Key points made:

1. Be led by the people- raise the issue amongst a large body of techy geekery using a #fixtheweb
Matt at Osmosoft can help penetrate that community, and others on the call have links into a variety of databases etc.

2. When people think they have an issue it can be they don’t know how to use the tools for access that they have- we can give people information about this based on available materials (Leonie knows where they are) and link to wider places for support.

3. Fix my street. Com is a good example of what we might wish to look like

4. A website is an important starting point (beyond the blog) we need a focal point and a fix the web twitter account.
Need to lay out what people do with the #tag and describe it and archiving tweets is important. Leonie can help with content- need to get some developer help.

5. Small business scheme through BIS could be a good reference for reaching out. Also googles Julian Hartley.
