A developers network for expressly open source-based coding and projects that help people connect with their nearest neighbors online.
Welcome to the Neighbors Open Source Developers Network and Exchange
Neighbors Open Source is a network for open source coding projects helping people connect with their nearest neighbors online.
This online group is primarily designed for software developers working on the BeNeighbors.org/BeNeighbours.org directory (launching first in select areas) and modules for major open source content management systems to support electronic block clubs and other forms of nearest neighbor connecting. This includes nearest neighbor directory tool ideas to support block leaders.
For those involved with commercial or non-technical effort to connect local people online, the general Locals Online exchange is for you. Major geeks should also join the general LocalLabs online community.
Coordination is supported by E-Democracy.org's Inclusive Community Engagement Online project funded by the Knight Foundation.
Our group posting address "neighborly@" pre-dates the unrelated neighbor.ly project.
