Creative communities in view

For the past year a network of six design schools in different parts of Europe has been collecting real-life examples of social innovation for a project called Emude, in which Doors of Perception is a partner. A lot of work has still to be done analysing these stories to figure out what lessons they might yield for policy makers, infrastructure providers, and other social innovators. But the raw material photographs of the first 70 cases have been put online at the website of the Sustainable Everyday project, and we thought you'd like to see this early material as pictorial evidence of what a post-hypertechnological (Ezio Manzini's word) Europe might be like.

It's a really interesting blog, and useful and interesting work, but the site has one very annoying feature - that to access the extended posts (only the first sentence or so is shown) you need to login to the site, but there is no link (that I could find) to somewhere that allows you to create a username/password...

Don't know if you could let whoever administrates the site know! and get them to change this (small) example of bad design!
