WCAX covers FPF

Thanks to Jennifer Reading…

Cringely tour hits #BTV #VT

The first business featured in Cringely’s (NOT in Silicon Valley) Startup Tour… Vermont’s own Front Porch ForumRobert X. Cringely rolled his family-packed RV through Burlington this month as he kicked off his tour.  FPF was selected as one of the 24 featured start-ups out of 400 applicants (thanks to John Seiffer for nominating us!).

Bob is putting together a TV series and a documentary out of this tour… to rival his work on PBS.  We’re thrilled!

He wrote today about the visit on his blog.

Community Policing 2.0?

From a local Vermont police chief…

Front Porch Forum is a great tool for us and many times we can address issues just by “hearing” the tone of a neighborhood.  It is especially helpful as the buzz begins about neighborhood or traffic issues.  Having the Corporal be a part of all 20 FPF neighborhood forums in our town is a great asset to us when trying to best serve our community.

On the Waterfront: Front Porch Forum

Thanks to Melinda Moulton for focusing on Front Porch Forum on her CCTV show last night.

Mystery mower strikes gratitude in South #BTV hearts

Posted today by Colette…

Just wanted to give a big thank you over the Front Porch Forum to the person who mowed my lawn? I really appreciate it. I’ve been asking around to thank you in person, but I still don’t know who you are!  So if it was you, again, thanks very much. 🙂
