Great thinking beautifully expressed David... and Dougald and Julian. This is exactly the sort of intelligent joining up needed. There are things happening on the ground that shouldn't be ignored by policy makers and developers, even if new types of community level activities seem largely to be ignoring them at the moment. It occurred to me earlier in the week at Chain Reaction, that urban regeneration must be one of the most exciting places to be. I hope very much that it isn't 'the last bout of communal generosity as a post-industrial nation takes to the lifeboat.' .... There are quite a few examples on the Social Spaces site of ground level community activities - http://www.socialspaces.org/

An inspired attempt to categorise humans. Thank heavens! I think I might use them as mood descriptions...

David this is one of the best posts I have read in ages. The article in the Sunday Times on Twitter was shocking for me - as there was such a lack of curiosity expressed. Currently social media offers more energy than anyone could every have thought possible. My own thoughts are that this movement towards participation is unstoppable, but there is a lot to learn about engaging everyone and it needs most of all to work as part of an overall 'participation strategy', with multiple routes in. As you describe co-design is doing amazing things and together with 'positive deviance' thinking we are possibly working towards a much more intelligently designed world - enriched through participation rather than passivity.
