This is just to begin some of the explanation around this idea, and we don’t expect it will make 100% sense as yet. We’re going to look at creating what we’re calling (working title!) Themed Kanban Tables.
We haven’t particularly mentioned them to date, but Dublin City Beta Projects uses 6 themes when trying to prioritise which Beta Projects macro to next work on. (Also see the blog sidebar where they’re shown.) (This image was taken as … Continue reading
We’ve been thinking about the idea of a 0.01% Innovation Fund for Dublin, and we’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions. (Pictured here is the Street Feast we went to, and munched at, at Dublin’s Urban Farm.)

Just getting some free time to blog this now (thanks again to everyone who came along!) and let you know how the artworks were selected for the Traffic Light Box Artwork Beta. On a Friday in early May, from 10:30-12:00 a … Continue reading
Thanks to everyone who submitted a proposal for a Traffic Light Box Artwork! We discussed this and we want to ask you something… What format should the ‘selection’ process take?
What’s the importance/value in an area having a clear name? Are there areas of the city that are more difficult to name? For example ‘Rathmines’, or ‘Stoneybatter’ are clear enough, however many areas of the city are not so clearly … Continue reading
