The site allows people to browse and subscribe to information...
- within a few blocks of their home (e.g. police & fire reports, real estate activity, and yard sales).
- associated with businesses, places, and other organizations near them (e.g. mentions in local news/blogs, Facebook posts, and web reviews).
- associated with local topics they care about (e.g. political issues, hobbies, kinds of businesses).
- posted by their neighbors (e.g. items for sale, discussions, and comments).
The site is in "open beta," which means there's a lot more to come, but it's ready for users and their feedback. If you live in Alameda, check it out!
