We appreciate that social media and the web can assist in helping understand what’s going on around us. We all need to talk, eat, and play. Some of the best spaces and most ingenious people give us opportunities to do this with or without spending a dime. Making lunch? Invite a neighbor you’ve only seen over for a bite. Headed to work? Find someone near you headed the same way and offer a ride, or ride with them. You might not know that person, but you will soon.
