Very, very cool! It must have been hard to find all of the content for that site!

Posted by Matt on January 23, 2008, at 11:21 p.m.:

Congrats! It's beautiful.

Congratulations. Off to a great start!

Very cool Adrian!

I'm looking forward to seeing it implemented in other cities. In the meantime, just another reason to move to Chicago!

Congratulations. I love the stuff you're doing in the hyperlocal space. Keep it up. The site is absolutely elegant.

Looks gorgeous, works brilliantly. I can't wait for Portland!

Congrats! Great to the see the vision becoming graspable.

Good to to see openlayers and tilecache in action. Wondering if django-gis is used and if MapServer or GeoServer is generating the tiles. Which cartographic data is used? OSM?

Must have been hard to get all the data especially the geometries. What do you think of zillows recent move of open sourcing the neighbourhood shapefiles?

Congratulations to the entire team, it's great to see the next step in your shake-up of the way we think about news.

Congratulations! This is going to be a really useful tool for citizens and people looking to move around. I'm excited to see it grow :)

Great job with the site. I think the big news sites will take notice of this and drool. As a resident of the Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago, I've been a fan of your chicagocrime.org site for quite a while. I love how you integrated that data into everyblock.

Is it up? I can't access it....

Mark: Our DNS provider (GoDaddy) is having some problems, which has made the site's domain unavailable intermittently for some ISPs. We've switched providers to solve the problem, so the site should be back online soon, depending on your ISP.
