Some decades ago in many cities and villages of Germany there was a so called "Dorfbott". He went in regular intervals
through the city or village, usually by bike, and told the people the local news. Two years ago this tradition was resumed within
another project called SoNaTe, that wants to increase communication and digital networks within communities.
