  • Ned Ludd and his 19th century band of "luddites" waged war against the fragmenting force of industrialization. Today's technology haters repeat the familiar refrain. Until recently, their claim was not without merit. Then along came social networking, connecting friends-of-friends, distant relatives and even perfect strangers.

    LocalBlox is the brainchild of Sabira Arefin, who envisioned a virtual space where neighbors could connect and share information about their own, real-world communities. "I thought it would be nice to have a Facebook for neighbors," says Arefin, "You can share information on the latest happenings, or just ping them and say hello. Who has the time to knock on doors these days?"

  • Knowing Your Neighbors!

    A recent survey from a market research group polled their members with the following question "Do you wish you knew your neighbors better?" Nearly 70% answered that they did! This poll was open to the entire research group, so it wasn't a scientific poll. Even so, it is probably safe to assume that the vast majority of us would like to know their neighbors better.

    Find neighborhoodWhat are some of the barriers to knowing our neighbors? Scheduling differences are probably responsible for some, and then too, some people find it difficult to say "hi" introduce them and start a conversation, thereby opening the door to forging a relationship.

    There are many benefits to knowing your neighborhood information. First, it makes it easy to spot someone who doesn't live in the neighborhood.

  • LOCALBLOX SENDS SUPPORT FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY HURRICANE IRENE

    Find neighborhoodFind neighborhoodWith the main storm part of hurricane Irene winding down, LocalBlox.com, your online neighborhood community page sends support and positive thoughts to all of those affected by Irene.

    With power still out in many areas, water flooding many streets and some areas starting to assess the damage, LocalBlox.com can be a very useful resource to communicate with one's neighbors and neighborhood information.

    Staying safe is important! The floodwaters can contain harmful bacteria and obscure dangerous items. If you must traverse the water, wear waterproof boots or hip waders that will provide a barrier between you and the water. After exiting the water, keep the boots or hip waders away from your living area. Wash your hands thoroughly after touching these items.

    Water conducts electricity very well. After a hurricane, there are always cases of someone being electrocuted by going into water that is covering a live and downed power line. Use extreme caution, and better yet, don't
