When you need something right away

The on-demand economy has been quite demanding lately.  It won’t be long before we buy something from Amazon and expect a drone to fly in our open window within a few hours.  But, sometimes you don’t even want to wait a few hours.  You just need something right away.

If you live in a densely populated area there is a good chance that thing you need is closer than you think.  It might be some oven-mitts because you have a turkey in the oven or some Advil because you just ran out and have a splitting migraine.

For those or any other ephemeral needs, you can just post to /t0010/need-it-now.  The /t0010/ is a modifier that sets the content to expire after 10 minutes, because oven mitts are no good if the turkey is burned to a crisp.  With some luck a neighbor will see your request and help you out at no charge.

It’s time to unlock the collective environments we live in rather than treat each dwelling as an isolated kingdom.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
