Launched in 2007, FixMyStreet is a web service to help people report, view, or discuss local problems with their local council by simply locating them on a map (a link is provided for London).  Built by MySociety, a not-for-profit company in conjunction with The Young Foundation.  FixMyStreet smartly routes reports of things that are broken or dumped, or need fixing, cleaning or clearing, directly to the relevant council in the UK.

The Age of Participation meets the Age of Transparency on a website in the context of a pothole - - both participation and transparency make for better democracy and more effective governess.
