Wake Up:Walk Out

It's a Monday morning, perfect time to get the week off to a positive start.

Some local Bristol guys who are always doing positive work are the folks who run 'Be That Change'. "We are you. We're not big business, big religion or big charity. We’re just a small group of individuals as concerned as you about our future - things aren't making much sense any more."

That small group of individuals is calling for a modern day twist on direct action to ask the main UK political parties to commit to 42% carbon cuts.

If you think that protest marches don't cut it anymore, be one of millions to get the attention of MPs. Get invovled by texting WAKEUP to 82222 followed by name and postcode. Then Walk Out on Climate Change Day on April 26th. (see website details)
Get involved in the twitterstorm. Don't wait around for others to do it for you, be the change you want to see.

Check this out:

“The Social Collider reveals cross-connections between conversations on Twitter.

With the Internet’s promise of instant and absolute connectedness, two things appear to be curiously underrepresented: both temporal and lateral perspective of our data-trails. Yet, the amount of data we are constantly producing provides a whole world of contexts, many of which can reveal astonishing relationships if only looked at through time.

This experiment explores these possibilities by starting with messages on the microblogging-platform Twitter. One can search for usernames or topics, which are tracked through time and visualized much like the way a particle collider draws pictures of subatomic matter. Posts that didn’t resonate with anyone just connect to the next item in the stream. The ones that did, however, spin off and horizontally link to users or topics who relate to them, either directly or in terms of their content.

The Social Collider acts as a metaphorical instrument which can be used to make visible how memes get created and how they propagate. Ideally, it might catch the Zeitgeist at work.
