From their site:
New York area governments are doing their best to help our region dig out of this mess of a snow storm. Call it Snowmageddon, call it the Blizzard of 2010. Whatever you call it, it’s a mess outside, and it’s going to take a long time for us to dig out.
We can all do our little part to make things better. That’s where you come in.
This Web site was built to be a simple tool that allows neighbor to help neighbor. Got an extra shovel? Post it up here. Know someone that can’t clean their own sidewalk or driveway and could use an extra set of arms to dig out? Organize an impromptu snow shoveling party.
How might we use technology to connect people for collaborative community action?
