Question Title

Hi, thanks for visiting our response form about the Social Reporting pilot. We hope you are well and having a good day, and are happy that you are interested in taking part in our pilot with us.

This is not a test. This form is here to collect your responses based on a set of criteria to find a range of social reporters for the pilot. We'd like to get the widest feedback and findings possible before deciding what to do next. So we are looking for a range of people in the United Kingdom from different:

  • Locations
  • Environments
  • Ages
  • Technical competences
  • Transition experiences
  • Interests

This will take you five minutes maximum. We do ask for a URL of your writing, and a short bio, so recommend you dig something out before doing the survey...

A 'not negotiable' is that you want to take part in a collaborative learning project, to share your stories, find new ways of telling them, and learn more about the whole 'social media' thing. All the content will be publicly available as per the Creative Commons licence for the site.

Right then, let's go...

Right then, we think that's about it.

Thank you very much for engaging with this gnarly challenge.

Next Steps

We aim to find 12 social reporters for the pilot by early August and will let you all know. Those who aren't in the first 'pilot' phase, ah well, but keep blogging! Or start blogging! Get an account on Wordpress and give it a whirl. It's the most fun you can have inside since cave painting.

We will keep a mailing list of you all and keep you informed of how it's going via that list, and hope to be inviting everyone to the social reporting project as it grows into 2012.


You're all a huge and continuous inspiration to us - thanks for doing the work that you do.
