If you follow me on Twitter, you might already have noticed that I'm quieter than usual this week, because all my tweeting energy will be poured into representing Britain over on the @PeopleOfUK account.
Following in the footsteps of the hugely successful @Sweden, each week one person will take over the @PeopleOfUK account and tweet their life. And I'm first up!
But you shouldn't follow @PeopleOfUK just because you want to listen to me talking about cookies and the Cotswolds. As a project, the really cool thing will be in the diversity of individuals taking over the account each week. And over the course of weeks, months, and (I hope) years, this should grow into a fantastic portrait of life in modern Britain.
The PeopleOfUK Project also has a blog where you can learn a little about who's taking over each week, and find out more details of how to get involved yourself (only if you're in the UK, though). There's also a list of other active accounts in the "location curation" scene.
