Nice idea

From London, I present you with Neighborhood Fix It. The whole idea is that neighbors can report on problems using a map and letting other know what the specific problem is. Then, when it is repaired they can post a note of "fix it".

Is still in Beta and I am sure it could be greatly improved, but the idea by itself is a very good one. I assume that the posts need to be moderated to make sure that they are not pranks.

If you want to see it in action, just type in Milton, Cambridge and you can see a sample of problems listed, some fixed and how the whole thing works. Yeah, it needs a better design and I would make different pennants for different problems, but they are in Beta and the idea is a good one.
