Officially we start the 12th, but we welcome you to join us at the DIgitalTown Hall event itself on June 13th at 9am. We created a make shift work space where you can interact with smart city stakeholders as you code the solution for what #LondonNeeds. Food, drinks, speakers, TED talk inspiration all included.
We announce the winner live on London Bridge. Folks in Miami standing by.
We’re merging the conventional economy and the sharing economy while at the same time expanding it. We can definitely interact and share with one another in more ways than we currently do. You know this London. To do it though, you need trust.
DigitalTown provides trust in the form of verified digital identity i.e. you are who you say you are. This is all part of the Smart Wallet API you’re building on. We enable users to build a reputation through acts of services and co creation i.e. it pays to be good. We’re taking this awesomeness and branding it London through the .LONDON registry. Represent yourself, your city, and take that reputation with you around the world.
