Keeping up with the #CitizenRelay
As you may already know, as we speak the Olympic Torch is currently touring the UK – in a gigantic relay that will touch almost every community – before reaching the Olympic stadium in time for the opening ceremony. The torch is currently weaving it’s way through Scotland, and it isn’t alone – the #citizenrelay team are following it in hot pursuit.
Citizen Relay, in their words is, “a participatory project which relies on the involvement of people from across Scotland to effectively report on the untold local stories and creative ways that Scotland’s citizens are interacting with the Olympic Games.”
And so over the last week in addition to many photos and tweets – we’ve seen some lovely Boos, providing a snap-shot of what is really happening on the route of the relay.
What’s cool too is that if you do some clever wrangling with the Audioboo API – you can make your Boos appear on a map!
