Here's a description for you.
What is this?
This is "Who Wants To Not Get Stabbed", a game using data from Google Street View and the police.uk API, made for National Hack The Government Day 2011.
Who made it?
Hello. I'm Tom Scott. I live at tomscott.com, and you can email me or follow me on Twitter.
I also did the voiceover; the music is Orbiter by MFR and is under a Creative Commons license.
Where's the crime rate data from?
The police.uk API, accurate as of early 2011.
It's broken!
Quite possibly. This was coded in a few hours' frenzy at a Hack Day, and there are almost certainly bugs – particularly if you're using a non-standard browser or playing with the very experimental audio features.
I have another question!
Email me. I'm friendly. Oh, and I thought I should mention that I'm looking for work doing web, video and viral stuff. Just in case.
