Four years ago I became an app maker. It began with a conversation between me and another mother round a kitchen table. What had happened to the art of learning poems by heart? We came up with an idea for a children's poetry app which would equip the digitally-native generation with a store of verse.

Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy.

Brazilians call them the Lucky Trucks or Caminhões da Sorte. They roll into town every week and in the remote mountain and jungle villages of Brazil they're a familiar sight. Parked up in the square, these gigantic HGVs - where the lottery draws are held - also sell national lottery tickets and provide simple banking services to people in some of the country's most far-flung villages.

Failing that, it has the cash to at least look into making a completely guilt-free iPhone. Every hipster, hippie and hip-anything is as hooked on their Apple products as they are on extremely questionable fashions, facial hair and kale, which is just lettuce pretending to be hip, but don't tell anyone.

Adam Poulter

On receiving a Fellowship at the BFI, Al Pacino said: "If you put any movie on a big screen nowadays, I'll love it. I mean, who wants to watch movies on iPhones? I'm so tired of that." I too love a good night out at the cinema, but he's wrong. Sorry Mr Pacino but millions of people watch films on their mobile devices worldwide, and Video on Demand (VOD) is their preferred choice.

Be the Voice for Abused Children

Doubt and fear of getting it wrong must play on people's minds even if they are worried. Often there are no obvious, physical signs of neglect. But if a child you know shows signs of not being fed or clothed properly, is missing school a lot or is left unsupervised and alone inappropriately for their age, we urge people to alert the professionals. I remember speaking to Claire [not her real name], one of our many fantastic foster carers. She has been looking after a 15-year-old boy who came into her care about two years ago, having suffered years of neglect. She spoke of how he looked like an 'eight-year-old' because he had been so badly underfed...

The web and sites like Change.org means that people can speak out and have more impact than ever before - proving wrong the assumption that the public don't care about politics.

Are we asking for radical change to the constitution of the UK? No - we're asking for a truer democracy, one where everyone gets and feels involved in the creation of their community. By returning the power to change things to those that need it most, this could well be seen as a great change so the question becomes 'Are we asking for radical change?' Yes - we're asking for a truer democracy.
