The BBC's public service remit makes them natural candidates to provide social software in the UK, and also inclusive demands design.
It is embarking on a number of social software projects where accessibility, safety and ease-of-use have been prime concerns, and reaching new, non-technically-savvy, non-PC centered audiences have been prime business drivers.
Often in the tech-led talk of social-software, user needs are the last things that are discussed.
We’ll review some of the user-centered research and design the BBC has carried out and look for lessons learned, as well as preview one of it's most ambitious social-software projects so far - a new service for involving people in civic life, local and national democracy, building social capital and creating change for themselves.
