 +# David Wilcox
 +I've been a print journalist, consultant in regeneration partnerships and community engagement, and for the past few years have focused on  how to mix face-to-face and online activities for collaboration. I call that social reporting. I've recently worked with Drew Mackie on the [Joined Up Digital](http://​​) project for the Centre for Ageing Better, following an exploration into Living Well in the Digital Age with the Age Action Alliance. We've developed social network mapping for the Croydon Best Start programme and other clients, and also created a suite of workshop games and simulations to support co-design. ​
