neighborgoods

I recently registered with Neighborgoods as a way to facilitate peer-to-peer sharing within my local community. The cute video I’ve included above explains that we hardly use our objects to their potential, and that via this site our value of things can be communally appreciated. Encouraging giving, trading, selling, and borrowing, Neighborgoods uses a simple Google Maps system to sketch its users among a space. Within these desired spaces users can connect with other members of their community and view the items they would either like to receive or lend. Each profile also includes a ticker which documents the dollar value each user has saved since participating with the site. Objects range from projectors, amps, and snorkle sets to Mario Kart for Wii and “platform goth boots”. Happy sharing!
