How do communities work?

John, of Brockley Central Twitter data fame, writes:

I’m looking for people who live and work in or around SE4, SE8 and SE14 to take part in a study about the ways people communicate with each other to get to know and be involved in their local area.

All it takes is an informal chat and a few questions lasting around 25 minutes, in a café or public space that’s convenient and comfortable for you. I’ll even provide the coffee!

If you’d be interested in taking part please drop me an email at
