This website, located at hlp.city, is operated by HELLO LAMP POST LIMITED (registered in England with registration number 11249234 whose registered office is at Hello Lamp Post Limited, 23 Shackleton Court, 2 Maritime Quay, London, United Kingdom, E14 3QF).
Codes can be found around the city that are normally used to identify public objects for maintenance and monitoring. With Hello Lamp Post we use these codes as identifiers in a city wide network of objects. These codes allow you to ‘wake up’ an object, learn what other people have been saying to objects, find out local information and answer questions from the object. Each exchange will last for a few messages and you will be encouraged to come back and talk to the object some more another day. The more you play, the more the hidden life of the city will be revealed. Objects might even start to get attached to you if you talk to them a lot. The only information we share is the responses you give to objects. These can be thought of as public conversations, comparable with those on twitter. They may be shown via sms or on the website or occasionally anonymously in print. We will never show your name, phone number or any other data about you.
