Neighborhoods, physical and virtual

Keith Hampton has announced the launch of i-neighbors, a set of free web services for neighborhoods in Canada and the US inspired by the research into the connection between virtual and f2f communities done by himself and Barry Wellman.
With their software you can

  • Meet and communicate with your neighbors.
  • Find neighbors with similar interests.
  • Share information on local companies and services.
  • Organize and advertise local events.
  • Vocalize local concerns and ideas.
