Lots of good clean fun on Twitter this morning where Paul Miller (@rellimluap) pointed to an “Australian Fix My Street“. It’s just a mock-up, created at the Canberra govhack hack day, but it’s great â€” mainly because of it’s title:
A lovely dose of self-aware humour “it’s buggered mate” â€” which I think is an important engagement tool. Not only does it get attention initially, but it starts the “community” of users off with them having a good idea who a site is for â€” it’s for “them”, and it’s for people who don’t take themselves too seriously. A bit of fun is a very powerful thing.
