The picture above of me and Tower Bridge was taken yesterday at City Hall, and is arguably one of the best views of London that I have ever encountered. I was there to listen to a debate at London House (in conjunction with London 2012 Olympic Games) featuring Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.
This post has nothing to do with the event but I thought this was a great picture to accompany a post about me taking over the @londonisyours Twitter account (more info here) for this week. For those of you not familiar with the Rotation Curation concept, it is basically Twitter accounts based on a theme (most commonly geographical locations) which features a different person each week. With the city/country accounts, the idea is for each individual to share a bit of his or her life to collectively paint a picture of the locality.
I started just after 8pm on Sunday night and will handle the account for a week. I’m really looking forward to this opportunity to share my London, but also to connect and engage with people from everywhere else.
Wish me luck!
