BBC - iCan - Homepage

BBC - iCan - Homepage
This is a cool idea by the BBC. The iCan site aims to help people take first steps in addressing issues which concern them. You can

* Find information and advice on hundreds of issues

* See what's going on in your area on iCan by typing in your postcode on the homepage

* Get details of local people who can help you (like your MP or councillor), also by typing in your postcode on the homepage

* Read our guides to help you take action, or stories sent in by users

* Post a notice about something that concerns you on your local noticeboard*

* Write an article to share your experiences with other users*

* Start a campaign online*

Wouldn't it be great to have something like this here?
