    A someone based in London I'm privileged by easy access - but constantly struck by the relatively narrow range of people and perspectives in events. The Big Society and social media circuits are good places to meet up with friends, but not challenging enough in terms of what really works on the ground.
    I'll commit to exploring ways of addressing this through nudges to organisers, reporting, and any other ways we can think of. Anyone else interested?

    Thanks James - that sound like a really interesting way to foster and support local action. Do you know if any are thinking along these lines?

    Thanks Mark - great idea. Does the framework I blogged about make an sense in relation to this? http://oursociety.org.uk/profiles/blogs/frameworks-for-thinking-about

    Thanks Phil - that sounds interesting. Are you able to fill this out a little?

    Annemarie - any help via @theplacestation would be brilliant, and see my other comment and post on NESTA. Do you know anything about Your/One? Square Mile ... I know they are running 15 workshops, but not much more.

    Thanks all - Jonny Zander has some fascinating ideas on mapping networks over here http://oursociety.org.uk/forum/topics/network-theory-and-the - see the piece he references.
    I've blogged a piece on the opportunities offered by the NESTA neighbourhoods programmes, and community organisers - http://socialreporter.com/?p=1234
    Should we create a networks and mapping group on the main site? What would work best for you enthusiasts:-)

    Could this tie in with the "create local maps idea"?

    Thanks Andy, Toby - does anyone have more info on Your Square Mile? Here's the initial description http://thebigsociety.co.uk/big-society-in-action/ysm/ and news of some pilots http://www.thirdsector.co.uk/news/Article/1042167/Square-Mile-pilots-scheduled/

    I know these are generally run as community events, but I've heard quite a few people in government say they would welcome surgeries too. Or maybe mixed community-council events? Would that work to help build relationships? Tech puzzlement is great neutral ground ...

    Thanks Nick. This might be something that Futuregov could help with through their http://simpl.co/ platform. It's still in beta, but sparking a lot of interest. I went to a speed dating session at the Hub this week which showed this possibility of mixing tech and face-to-face.
