Building communities the local way – Brighton rocks

The boom of the internet over the past 10 years has made people think globally.  People jumped at opportunities to create global businesses and communities.

It’s all good and great to reduce the global barriers, but the downside is that the community on your doorstep had been neglected.  Over the past year I have begun to realise how important it is to get to know, communicate and understand the people we live with.

I have met lots of people through the local events I have started, helped out with and attended and it’s been a real eye opener to the Brighton digital community.  People seem to think that all the good things happen in London (work, jobs, events, night outs, training, etc).  I’m here to challenge that.

I think (digital or not so digital) Brighton rocks and if we collaborate more, our local community will begin to realise the benefits.
