So action items:

  (i) Set up basic thebigclean.org wordpress site (1-2 hours)
  (ii) Launch site with blog post and publicise (1 hour)
  (iii) See if we can find other partners in other European cities to
take part/participate - if not in March, then in May/June

If anyone on the list has a spare hour or so to help with (i) it would
be *very* much appreciated! ;-)
