A while ago, I came across the innovative addressing system what3words. It means that addresses need not be tied to streets and houses, but that anywhere can have an address. For example, the person sleeping under the Digby Hospital water tower has the address narrow.fade.novel.
I wondered whether I could do anything with it, and came up with the idea of asking people what three words their place means to them. Initially, i linked it to the address system, but that made it confusing, and it fell away.
So here is the What three words…? app, that let’s you choose your place and enter your words, and browse what others have said about their places.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be around and about the area with a tablet, asking people what they think. Watch out!
