Found a really cool post on LifeHacker today about a free service that’ll be really useful for folks living outside the US of A.

It’s the nicest area in the country and is a fully planned live/work/play/shop community on the grounds of what used to be Fort McKinley.

The cool thing about the development is that it’s 65% green space which means there’s ...Continue Reading → Share
