DIYCouncil

Extending the BCCDIY idea and generalising it for every council in the UK. An auto-generated tool for making a readable, accessible, non-stupid council website for every local authority in the UK. Gave up when I saw what GDS were up to (with money), and also when Directgov’s API was canned. Still not really been done…

I stopped work when GDS started talking about Single Domain for government, but this still hasn’t been done. Sadly, it’s a bit of a thankless task and people get pretty upset about folks like me messing around with stuff for free that they’re charging a lot of money for. Life’s too short.
