This is really cool - reminds me of the popvscoke site or the potato bug debate last week. The slide show's a little janky but generally works well. Needs a self-report thing for aggregating user-determined data.

The standalone version will be available for download on April 15, 2005

Pretty neat stuff, its a little slow and they should spell check pages before they go live (check out Interactive on the home page).

And once this is downloadable, it will be supercool. Especially if I can download it to my PDA!

It's beta and more data (and perhaps more analytical tools) will be added to the site over the next few months.

And here I thought I live in a "white" neighborhood.

Can anyone tell me what a "bodega" is?

A bodega originally meant a Latin owned corner store, but is often applied to any immigrant owned corner store.

Oh, ok. We always called it the 40/420 store for some unknown reason.

Wow. The coolest thing I've seen posted to MeFi in ages. Many times I would have paid handsomely for some of this data and interface.

15-25% of my neighbors heat with coal or wood in my 90-100% rural area. Excellent.

I heat with wood at my cabin.

Bomb = the bomb.

Since when does "social" mean "race?"
