Thank you!
This is an awesome idea of innovation.
I will tell all my friends and let my friends tell their friends and their friends tell their friends of friends. And together we will surely build a wonderful NEIGHBORHOOD that has ever been.

These are the type of neighbors everyone show have!

NeighborGoods should consider powering a share function on BuildingLink.com or somehow partnering with them (and other similar sites or universities, think dorms). I hate the look and feel of BuildingLink (probably designed in the '80s by people who have 0 feel for aesthetics), but that's the website that many residents of large residential buildings in NYC uses. It's sort of like Craigslist for just people in your building; it's also a communication tool between residents and management so you can just go online to file a maintenance request; it also emails you when you get a package. Anyway, the growth potential for NeighborGoods is huge in densely populated areas like Manhattan - there are 700+ apartment units just in my building alone.

Excellent test transaction.

great neighbor!!

I heard you on the CBC show Spark. Just waiting for Canadian Postal Codes. Great Idea!!

I heard about this on the NPR piece this morning... I have been participating in Freecycle for a few years now and I think your NeighborGoods idea is great. My suggestion would be that we be allowed to enter in a radius... my comfort zone is about 10 miles, which incorporates 8 different towns. Other people's zone might be less or more... is this a possibility?
Thanks for thinking of this!

i'm new to this site and am trying to do my first transaction. i sent a request to borrow something a week ago but haven't heard anything back. how do they know i sent them a request? are they going to get an email notification, or do they have to keep checking the site? what can i do if they never get back to me?

i just enjoy this site to let people borrow safe save monkey

Fast response to request

I think that the site is great. Many of us are having hard times right now. Maybe this can help people get a shoulder to lean on....

Amazing website! watch out for shady government types, they don't like anything they can't tax and inflate.

What a great idea Micki! Thanks.

Hello Micki -nice to be here. I run Permaculture Training Seminars throughout the Southland. I would love for you to join us, as my guest, sometime... see earthflow.com -thanks- Larry

I hate social networking sites....but this is rad:) Good on you guys.

Thank you for the loan of the ladder. I have now ascended from the depths of isolation. ;-)

Yay, slug defeated with help from a ladder.

Great ladder borrower!

Micki!!!

Heard about your site on NPR yesterday. Nice idea!

Hey micki,

Nice useful site. I wanted to started to start something similar and glad to see you guys did. Happy to help out. I see there is no category for services or help neighbor with your skills. I am computer guy and sometimes my neighbors struggle with computer stuff. I am happy to help out on weekends and similarly may neighbors are happy to lend hand on what they know for free or money. THat helps. Like plumber next door can help with faucet fixing instead of you struggling with it. So think about that.

this is the coolest!

wow! this is an amazing idea!! god bless you guys.

cool site micki, will go around the house to find things to share now.

Nice site you have started here. :-)

I love the idea of sharing with neighbors, but your options & rating system is what puts the shine on this idea & website! Being able to charge a temporary deposit, a nominal usage fee, or rate someone as a dirt bag for not returning your stuff or handling your belongings properly is priceless!

Can I donate $5 to you somehow???

Love this idea! ,Brilliant form of community building, thanks.

lmao your cute, this is a great idea

Love this idea! Go Micki Go!

No one has ever helped me more on Neighborgoods.

I can't seem to figure how to make Cyndi my friend .. She will be ising my lighting kits at the end of the month . Thanks akaAbacus (Barry A. Manheimer)

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood
A beautiful day for a neighbor
Would you be mine
Could you be mine

It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood
A neighborly day for a beauty
Would you be mine
Could you be mine

I've always wanted to have a neighbor just like you
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you

So, let's make the most of this beautiful day
Since we're together we might as well say
Would you be mine, could you be mine
Won't you be my neighbor
Won't you please, won't you please
Please won't you be my neighbor

You are going to make a gajillion dollars.

Great concept. I live in a 48 unit apt complex and will mention this on my FB page...hope to see it grow in Toms River NJ

Brilliant form of community building, thanks.

Hey Micki. Im in Omaha NE. Love your site. I hope more people join in my area. Only one other so far. Im always amazed at a site like this and I kick myself and think "why didn't I think of that." Thanks

Great concept in many ways! Now let's hope people stay honest and don't mess it up for the rest of us.

Hi I just signed up and added a few things to my inventory. My twitter account shows that I did so ... but the updates are messed up. http://twitter.com/evanwilder or http://twitter.com/evanwilder/status/17439013962 shows what I mean. Can you fix that for the future?

micki rocks!

I am very impressed with the idea of all of this. Cant wait to get my packet...

I think this is a brilliant idea for a site, I hope it dose well.

Love it! Hope more ppl will sign up.

great idea !!!!! some rentals rather high but great idea non the less

I love this idea. You are truly a catalyst for change!
Keep it up!

great idea micki! hope it catches on my 'hood and spreads like wildfire elsewhere.

Somerville/Boston area in the house! I'm about to send out tons of invites.

I remember wanting to build something like this even back in college but I could never figure out a way to design it that wouldn't be too complex. Not only is NeighborGoods simple but it's useful and fun! So, thanks :)

How do I delete items from my wish list? Perhaps Aston Martin and Porsche 911 was a bit of stretch....:)

Congrats on getting this put together, Micki, I hope it works well. I'll do my best to get it to take off here in Columbus, OH. Some neighbors and I had talked about making a site like this, but never got around to it; maybe now we won't have to!

I have a question. How do I know if something is listed to borrow or buy? Do I have to ask the person listing or is it on the page somewhere and I just missed it. I saw one thing that said "to borrow" but nothing else.

Clever name and important service. I twitter about clever names - and will feature you!

I like this site

First for Phoenix I believe. Just sent out a bunch of invites. This all looks great! Thanks.

The site looks nice...!!

@davemora No worries! We never share your address with anyone.

I am thinking about upgrading to pro. But, I am very private about my real physical address. I love your verification process by sending me something in the mail.

Do I have to worry about that address being made public on my profile somewhere?

i love this site's idea.
I constantly complain about all the crap that my family and friends buy. Id rather see them buy good stuff once. and borrow my good stuff.

nice try, i hope more people in hawaii sign up

saw you at DIY Days, and here I am! Ready to share and also looking for a soldering kit... I'll be checking in regularly once I get my kit - drmental@twitter

Heya Neighbor!
Thanks for everything yesterday, the shoot went great.
Have signed up and asked to become verified as well as added three items to my list. Will spread the word around town :)

Anyways, great meeting you, awesome work, stay in touch!

Nice catch, Daryn! I've fixed the link. Welcome to NeighborGoods! Can you try the photo again and email the deets of the error? micki@neighborgoods.net.

Hey Micki - the site looks good, congratulations.

Two quick things -- Your URL: http://neighborgoods.net/mickipedia is wrong on the neighbor_micki "about" paragraph, and when I tried to upload a profile image, i got a permission denied error.

Looking forward to inviting some friends and using it more soon.
