i-neighbors in the news : communicating about crime
There have been a couple of media reports on i-neighbors over the past month. A very interesting local television report about how a neighborhood in Savannah, GA used i-neighbors to communicate about a local robbery: see the print report, and the video. Also, i-neighbors was mentioned in a New York Times article on the use of neighborhood websites in apartment buildings.
