the london camphone militia

February 15, 2005

lewisham_before (2k image)lewisham_after (2k image)the borough of lewisham, a district of london, has introduced a creative use of camara phones to keep its streets tidy: every citizen is asked to take photos of “problems” on the streets (such as abandoned cars, garbage or graffitis) and upload them to lovelewisham.org, with the help of a free java midlet. a cleaning team then visits the site, removes the problem and posts an “after”-image to the website. see examples on the left, taken from their picture collection.

cool. and a little bit frightening. wouldn’t like to see a bottom-up surveillance society la george orwell be created with the help of cellphones. (via smartmobs)
