Important: Moblog MMS/SMS number discontinued

We have discontinued the use of our MMS/SMS number, so messages sent to it will no longer arrive at the site. The main reasons for our discontinuation are that very few people were making use of SMS only blogging, and the the rather large ongoing monthly expense of keeping it going. As ever, you can easily MMS in to your moblog simply by sending MMS's to your unique submission address. We hope this doesn't cause too much inconvenience.

The first episode of the accompanying TV show 'The Big Art Project' starts tonight at 10pm on Channel 4 (UK) and thereafter every Sunday at 10pm for 4 weeks.

Britglyph wins at the Webby's!

The Britglyph project has won a Webby. The only reason this worked is because you all got it, took part and believed in this odd and off kilter idea. Thank you so so much for getting winter gear on and visiting some of the most out of the way places across the UK so this project could happen. The Webby page is here.

Britglyph nominated for two Webby awards

Nominated in both the 'Experimental and innovation' and 'Netart' categories for the 2009 Webby awards, the Britglyph project is also now open for the 'People's Voice' award. As the name implies, this is the award that you can vote for, and we would really appreciate it if you could take a moment to register and cast your vote for Britglyph.

The Big Womble: Making reuse of the things that we find

ON the 20th of February the charity London Community Recycling Network is hosting their first 'Big Womble'. The event invites you to bring old, tired and broken furniture for a day of learning about DIY, furniture painting, and generally not letting your old furniture just fade away. As well as this, of course we have a moblog for the Big Womble, which invites you to add pictures and video of furniture you might've found, bought second hand or restored, so please take a moment to share your reuse stories.
