Are you the kind of person who knows the latest openings, finds curious gems and discovers hidden secrets in our great capital? Of course you are — you're a Londonist reader. Now you can share that know-how with others and earn great rewards to boot when you join Google's new Local Guides programme.
If you've got a lot of love for the little park round the corner from your office, the greasy spoon that saves you on Sunday mornings or that quirky independent shop that you'd never find outside London, put it on Google Maps. You'll be supporting your favourite local business and helping others find the best bits of this marvellous city.
It's not all about the warm fuzzy feeling: you earn rewards for every review you write, every photo you add, every piece of content you edit to bring it bang up-to-date. You could win the latest piece of tech, unlock extra Drive storage (to save all those gorgeous snaps you're taking) and attend exclusive events. Past do's have included jaunts up the BT Tower and down to disused Aldwych station — plenty to get a Londonista hot under the collar.
