Research Questions

1. Have e-mailed those who live nearest them on their block or just down the road?

2. Have traded an e-mail address on paper with a neighbor.

3. Are aware of or a member of a neighborhood e-mail newsletter (one way)?

4. Are aware of or a member of a neighborhood e-mail discussion list/web forum/neighborhood blog (I'd ask each separately)?

5. Would sign-up for 3 or 4 if one existed for their area?

6. If interested, what topics/uses interest them most?

7. Are aware of or have visited the website for their neighborhood association (only applies in cities)?

8. Are interested in secure online spaces to connect specifically with those on their block for crime prevention, baby sitting swapping, and the kinds of group communication you don't want everyone to see on Google?
