Local by Social - Rethinking apps

Published on

A look at applications and open data for the Local by Social South West 'Apps for Communities' event in Bristol on 28th January 2011.

  • Ever wondered what an 'App is' ... is it something 'new', only found on smartphones... You'll be surprised and inspired by watching this Slideshare.
    I was privileged to meet Tim, the author on Friday and yesterday. His expertise has grown out of a MSc research programme. He is currently taking a short sabbatical so he can deepen his understanding as a practitioner. Tim has a broad and deep understanding of Apps and, significantly, the ability to clearly communicate complex issues. This is a fantastic Slideshare. I encourage you to like, tweet and share. I believe you will add significant value to your Network(s) if you do!
