    I wish this kind of thing were more common.  I think about stuff like this all the time.

    I attend the local Liverpool maker space (DoES). As a disabled person who is a techie, I was rather inspired by the DIY culture aspect, as well as the possibilities I was being introduced to. ‘Shouldn’t the people who provide care for older and disabled people know about this Maker/IoT/Big Data stuff’ I thought. So, I organised a Social Care Hack Day. It was weirdly easy. Once people knew I was doing it for nothing, I got lots of free support. A council initiative got behind it, and it ended up being pretty successful.
    What I learnt is: say ‘this is happening’ and ask people to help it happen and it does.
