We use a popular chat app called Slack to create our own private neighbor-to-neighbor communication space. It's a very nice app on your smartphone or computer, or you can use it from any web browser. You can configure your settings to notify you of messages in real time (like texting), or check it on your own schedule (like discussion/bulletin boards). There are multiple channels (a.k.a. chat rooms) to be "in" or "out" of as you please.
You might want to participate here to:
- Get to know your neighbors in the #introductions channel
- Contribute a newsletter item in the #news channel
- Volunteer to support your neighbors in the #organizing channel
- Ask for an egg, or to borrow a wheelbarrow, in #other-stuff
(TODO: Add some Slack tips for configuring notifications, profiles, etc.) You can also pop into #slack-help in the chat, or email email@example.com with any questions.
