Here at Pool we’re always keen to hear about new trends and ideas in social media. So when we heard about a screening of Us Now in Sydney, a UK film project about the power of mass collaboration, government and the Internet, we just had to share it with you. We asked one of the main ‘unorganisers’ of Us Now Sydney, Headshift consultant James Dellow, to blog for Pool about the film, the Sydney screening and how it all came about. James asks us to think about our own Us Now Australia story
BTW the Pool is an interesting project in itself – the intent of the site, which has been created by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), is to provide an “online ‘town square’ for all Australians… where audiences become ‘co-creators'”. They are gradually releasing media from the ABC archives to the site so it can be remixed. Worth checking out.
