Poke a Building

If you're always trying to friend the Rowan on Facebook and wish the Carlyle would update its Twitter more often, then Honest Buildings is for you--it's a brand new social network based around buildings: "It’s easy enough to see how this chain of connections – service providers-projects-buildings-people – could be useful from a number of entry points. If you’re a prospective homebuyer, you may be able to research the history of different buildings, the renovations that have been done there and the reputations of the companies behind them. If you’re a landlord in search of a good HVAC guy, the site could theoretically help you find one nearby. Or if you install LED lighting for a living, you can compete for business (or scour for energy-inefficient potential customers), all online." [Atlantic Cities, official site]
