PLACE space: new online virtual town square

Arlington County has opened a new online virtual town square called PLACE space.  It's an excellent, low-cost experiment in community networking.  Compared to social networks like facebook, PLACE space is community-focused, simpler, and not cluttered with ads, offers, and games.  You can help PLACE space get over the "I don't want to go there because nobody goes there" start-up problem by signing up and giving it a chance

The Ode Street Tribune has gotten involved in PLACE space by signing up and starting a vegetable circle.  The vegetable circle is intended to foster local discussion on growing, buying, cooking, and eating vegetables.  Is your garden producing far more zucchini than you can eat?  Offer some to your neighbors in the PLACE space vegetable circle!
