    • The “default” local online news discussion experience is …
      Most people see, expect public conflict.Sharp contrast with private social networking.
    • Neighbors Forums
    • Unlocking community …
      Connecting people who live near one another.
    • Growing community…
      Opening “organic” hot topic on Standish Ericsson Neighbors Forum in Dec. 2008: http://e-democracy.org/se
      Dear Neighbors, My name is Michael and I'm interested in establishing a community garden in our neighborhood.
      Dozens of messages, offers to help, and a call for a meeting.
      Radical idea!? Local people online can meet in-person.
      500 members, 10%+ of households in May 2010
      This month the Southside Star Community Garden opened!

    • Neighbor.be
      Unedited, PowerPoint inappropriate junk from our wiki
    • Neighbor.be
      Are you neighborly?Would you like to build connections with your neighbors ...
      to make your block safer and prevent crime
      to "break the ice" and meet your neighbors
      to communicate easily as a group with the neighbors you know
      to share experiences and tips answering "who can recommend a good plumber"
      to connect with other parents nearby organize fun activities for your kids
      to organize a spontaneous neighborhood block party on an especially nice spring day
      to do any of the scores of block activities we've identified
      and find geographically relevant information and connections to online community groups in your broader area
      Neighbor.be is a simple idea - use online tools to connect people to their nearest neighbors.
    • Neighbor.be
      How it might work
      This experience is simple:
      1. Sign-up - Including your full street address.
      2. Get Listed - You are listed in your custom directory of nearest neighbors (site participants) in a circle around you covering 25 to 100 people. Target members: "neighborly" people open to private small group connections
      3. Connect - Use your neighbor directory to connect with others via their preference (login required, reciprocity ensured). Determine how you want to connect one to one whether by telephone, e-mail or a web form, encouraging neighbors to friend you on Facebook or follow on Twitter, or none of the above.
    • Neighbor.be
      4. Discuss- Easily share information (about a break-in on your block), ask questions (who can recommend a good plumber), etc. in private group setting with those in your neighbor circle (directory). Post via e-mail or web. Read via e-mail or web. Topics you start are restricted to just those in your circle. You own the topic and may delete it or comments at anytime. You may only comment on topics started by people in your directory as well.
      5. Explore Locally- Based on your location, find other opportunities for broader public engagement from wider community e-mail lists and neighborhood blogs to aggregated place-based government and community information and links connecting you to civic life. Neighbor.be seeks to introduce you to broader public life with you at the center.
