Brockley secures World Heritage status

The lesson of Apple is you cannot just listen to what people are saying they need because they are going to define everything they need in terms they already know: bigger, faster, cheaper. The true revolutionary creates a product or service before people can really define the need for that product or service. They anticipate where the market will go as opposed to simply reacting quickly to where the market is already going.

Criticised after the iPhone 5 launch for having run out of ideas, Apple has confounded its critics once again by embracing the biggest idea of them all: 'Greater Brockley'.

Julian sent us this shot of the Evening Standard, which reports on the Apple Maps cock-up, resulting in London landmarks being shunted around:

So it's official. The idea of Crofton Park as a separate entity is dead and buried - literally, in Brockley Cemetery. RIP.

Hi Joeg. Brockley is a strange conundrum when it comes to matters geographical. It is a fluid entity, historically shifting and sliding around the zone between Stanstead Road and Lewisham Way. Originally it was a farm in the vicinity of the Brockley Jack in the heart of (what is now) Crofton Park. Then the railways came and the station built at the foot of Malpas Road inherited the name Brockley, pulling the centre northwards but leaving the name still attached to the rise heading south from the old farm. When Lewisham Council then used the name Brockley to describe their new conservation area running from Deptford Common (off Lewisham Way) down to St Andrews church, Brockley was again shifted north. In the opposite direction the hill above Stanstead Road now borrowed the name Rise from the rise heading south from the Jack. Having torn itself in two, Brockley left the centre ground unoccupied and once again it was a railway station which offered its services with the 'unoccupied' no-mans land taking the name of Crofton Park station. This is pretty much the status quo, though you will find many in the local blogsphere trying to extend Brockley north of Lewisham Way and West towards New Cross. I like to think of Brockley as a snail, gradually snaking its way around the South East, leaving a trail of streets and buildings in its wake as its makes it way to some unknown destination. My guess is that sometime mid 22nd century it will have reached the river - probably heading for the then newly established centre occupying the Convoys Wharf site where it will be known as Brockley Marina.
