I did a set of four walks in Austria; two long ones, two short ones. I did some "daystreaming" where using bits of technology I was updating my location, status and pictures as I walked.
I hope you enjoyed following me on my walks and I hope even more that you'll support Child's I. I'm hoping to raise £500 for this charity, £10 for every km walked.
It seemed very luxurious for me to be taking a holiday when there is so much hardship and poverty in the world and it felt wrong to be doing these walks without trying to better the world in some small way. After being a part of the Activate Summit, I've had a feeling that we all need to do our part, big or small, in helping to sort out the world's problems. Doing these walks to raise money for charity and trying to write some tech about how you lifestream time and place seemed like a very small thing I could do.
They weren't speed walks, more a set of gentle ambles along the Steyr and Ziller valleys where there are a couple of lovely little steam railways and some beautiful scenery to just walk through. I was be thinking, walking, photographing, measuring and hopefully with your help raising money for the lovely people at Child's I. It was an exercise in being, both in solitude and through technology with people.

Following and spreading the word
You can obviously follow Chris (jaggeree
), he'll be tweeting a bit, but more on the emotional highlights rather than the progress.
There is a fourwalks
account where all of the tech and gadgets will be hopefully pushing content
Please share details about this on Twitter and Facebook, let's see collectively how much we can raise for a good cause.
