The iceberg of social engagement

Over years of working in various communities around SE London, YT has created what is a ‘model of understanding’  directly working with people. An iceberg only shows a fifth above the water, and so do many people when using a service provided to promote digital skills/inclusion. Its not all economics. Money in our western world […]

PPS and the pub tour

March was extra busy with work of my own to try engage with the local freelancers and self employed people in Deptford. Wednesday nights in a number of local bars and pubs to starting gauging and engaging with who wants to get ‘social and sociable’. To avoid unnecessary whinging (no venue offered any promotion), YT […]

Mycenae Digital The sessions are running close to the wind in terms of being manageable, with access issues for wifi stability and lack of a lift.

PPS – post postscriptum?

In my years of freelancing in Deptford, YT has made every attempt to work with local businesses and organisations to get that buzz of ‘working in my community’, ‘feeling the synergy’ and err, what I personally call ‘thinking and acting local’. The last option may be the only piece of reading that is definitely not […]

Training Mr Luck

But with a new home in the Pepys Resource Centre (now a volunteer run library), the MAZI exploration restarted. James has been repurposing the MAZIzone, working with Central Saint Martins and aiming to bring in […]
