Read best-selling author Bill McKibben's take on Front Porch Forum's origins.
When Michael and Valerie Wood-Lewis moved into a new neighbourhood, they wanted a way to get to know their neighbours. But when cookies and knocking on doors didn't work, they decided to make a digital connection. Front Porch Forum is an example of why online forums still matter today in an age of social media titans like Facebook and Twitter. Their local approach helps neighbours connect and build community.
