First post.

This is the first sentence.

Powerful typologies work.

EveryBlock is a new, "extremely local" news and community site. They have a simple front page that powerfully demonstrates software as a sentence:

The easiest way to keep track of what’s happening on your block, in your neighborhood and all over your city — like restaurant inspections in Chinatown, crimes in the Loop or everything around 473 Kent Ave.

The phases like "restaurant inspections in Chinatown" are all links and represents sophisticated sorts across a vast database of events and news, collecting variables and filtering them through transformations. Put another way, combining nouns with prepositions (techincally more like adpositions).

These phases are a great way to demo the potential of the site.
