I realize that not many will read this since class is over, but I caught up with a friend of mine from high school last night on facebook. He is a web designer and has created a site called Everyblock.
Everyblock put simply is a news feed for your block or neighborhood. Here is where we come in. They are not currently in Nashville, but if enough people submit they will build a Nashville site. Check it out at http://www.everyblock.com/.
