God Entity: Bender, being God isn't easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you, and if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch. Like a safecracker, or a pickpocket.
Bender: Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money!
God Entity: Yes, if you make it look like an electrical thing. When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

The Goldsmiths research team Legible Landscapes have been back in touch to ask for more volunteers for their personal microclimate experiment, which we still don't understand, but which sounds fun.

So far, half of their subjects have been recruited via this site, so if you do agree to participate, you'll be in magnificent company.

We recently held a kick-off meeting with several Brockley residents who received research kits including a home safari packet for photographing colorful cut-outs of animals in different
habitats of their home. The research kit includes several such playful and thought provoking activities for thinking about the home as a microclimate and getting prepared for the installation of the digital devices.

We are still seeking participants from SE4, SE8, SE14 and SE23 and will be running another orientation meeting in early to mid May. Interested people should contact Kirsten at More information is available at
