Warm fuzzy glow

Sometimes when I use the web, I am infused with a fuzzy warm glow of humanity. Some call it serotonin.

Sometimes when I use the web, I am infused with a fuzzy warm glow of humanity. Some call it serotonin. Others call it Finding The Right Stuff. And I found a lot of right stuff by a chap called Matthew Somerville:

  • Accessible UK Train Timetables: no login required, easy-to-use, simple, works on my mobile phone.
  • Postbox locator: Find, er, a postbox. Brilliant.
  • FixMyStreet.com: Potholes? Dodgy streetlight? Report it and get it fixed with this handy tool. I used it and it works.
  • TheyWorkForYou.com: MPs. Who do they work for? They work for you! Find out what your MP is up to.
  • WriteToThem: Once you’ve found out what they’re doing, write to them. Without a stamp, using modern, 21st style technology. It’s brilliant, I’ve used it.

I’m sure there are other people involved from the mySociety democracy organisation but never have I found so much good and useful stuff emanating from one website. Thank you very much :)
