Networking online for your community offline, the podcast this week finds out how people online work with the police to fight crime.
If we mentioned a place that you would like to visit online, then you can find all the links right here:

  • Cyclist Lance Armstrong twittered when his bike was stolen. Sergeant Leong of the Sacramento Police Department talks about how online friends of Armstrong worked out ways to try and find the missing cycle.
  • Communities online helping to solve crimes and keep an eye on your neighbourhood in Hertfordshire, UK. Gary Fenton of OWL explains why he set up this system to work with the police.
  • Neighbourhood watch doesn't have to be old fashioned or have a website built especially. Sukvinder Kumar talks about getting her community online via Facebook.
  • The economy may be having an epic fail, but those in the know can make do, mend and even redesign.Outsapop shares on her Blog and on Flicker.
