Low on time (again) but high on ideas.  Today’s project is a striking example of the networked age trickling into the offline world – linking people as friends and neighbors and now collaborators in an effort to unify, empower and secure their community.  It’s a new generation of neighborhood watch, and it’s going to save lives.  Now you can become a part of this community, and in so doing, a part of the hundreds that might follow the successful example of the power of networked neighborhoods.

Read more about the project and support Homocide Watch DC on Kickstarter soon, because the deadline is a mere three hours away.
