n0tice.com goes northPosted: May 1, 2012
The Guardian’s Northerner blog is now sporting a new interactive events maps powered by n0tice.com. The blog, which I contribute to along with John Baron, Helen Carter, Northern editor Martin Wainwright and others, features news and information from across the north of England and the new map means that readers can easily share their events there too.
A noticeboard set up by the team and personalised in the style of the blog can be seen at northerner.n0tice.com. Any entries made there are then fed automatically into the map.
Martin said: “We’re supposed to talk to strangers in the north and smile at other passengers on buses and trains. Our Northerner n0ticeboard is an excellent extension of that. It’s easy to use to flag up events and has all those canny computer tricks of telling you about other things happening nearby, when you click on a particular entry. Please use it both ways: to tell the rest of the north what you’re doing, or interested in; and to find out what everyone else is up to.”
