This idea I like. To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo massacre (and the journey towards universal suffrage), change the name of Manchester Piccadilly to Manchester Peterloo. If the people of Manchester want it, it should happen.
Link to the Manchester City Council e-petition (for what it’s worth) here.
Discovered the Geocaching app this weekend, the day after seeing Cucalu. Both aim to help us make more of the world around us: Geocaching is mass-participation treasure hunt, Cucalu (pictured) sends users a photography brief. I like them both, and certainly prefer them to Dustcloud, a Kickstarter hoping to create a geo-combat assassination game.
Interestingly, PSV Eindhoven fans this weekend campaigned against the club installing wi-fi in the stadium. They want fans supporting the team (in real life) rather than glued to their phone (sample banner “fuck wi-fi, support the team”). I fear they’re fighting a losing battle. You can bet there will be developers working on a live, in-stadium football app.
