Hey neighbor,can I borrow your............?

I was perusing the internet trying to get up to date on what is cool and came across this little nugget:

Watch This Intro Video! from sparky rose on Vimeo.

from Neighborgoods:

"The idea of NeighborGoods is so simple. Sharing stuff is good for you. It saves you money, it's more sustainable than buying a bunch of crap you don't need, and it creates a reason to meet a friend or a neighbor face to face where you might not have otherwise. Still, this very simple idea has the potential for monumental impact, especially when taken in context of a larger cultural movement. "

This such a great idea, I don't even know where to start. For Eric who said "I can't say I share your view on tools though. I feel it's less important to have a good set of tools and more important to have a neighbor who has a good set of tools (and a good relationship with such a neighbor)", here's the answer to that.

I signed up and there are already two others in my area. One of which is a beekeeper. I am very excited about this idea. Can't wait to give it a try.
