It’s as if most bloggers, media and news sites have reached a point where they’ve realised there really is no down-side in misrepresenting, or simply inventing facts to support their stories. If it agrees with their beliefs most readers will share it anyway, and those who do call it out only increases the attention they get ..and of course in turn their profits…
We’ve been working on this resource map for 1.5 years now and it’s close to launch. This Hack-Day is to finally finish it, and promote it so it can begin helping those on the streets all around the World.
The map is called the ‘Brighter Tomorrow’s Map’ and it lists all the resources available to people who are living on the streets, with a focus on reducing the barrier between the public who want to do something to help, and those who are living on the streets around the World.

Below are some photo’s of a horribly neglected area in the Maiden Lane estate, in Camden London.The story i heard is that the council disputes who is responsible for the area, and so its been left as a dump for close to 30 years.We’re bringing local people together to take ownership for their community, by creating beautiful gardens and landscape to create a lovely walk to school for all the families and children who regularly use the path, and to make the local area a more pleasant place to live. I’m sure those kids would have a nicer start to the day if their walk to school involved a magical oasis of creativity and nature ..than through this horrible eye-sore.Send us an email if you’d like to know more, join in, or help us contacting local businesses to gather materials, seeds and plants.Beautification begins on the 26th and 27th of September
The weather. It’s always a talking point. Maybe its because its something that the whole world has in common. Or maybe its because its an easy topic to start with if you want to break the ice and start a conversation with a stranger. It’s always going to be there, the weather.
