    Default Find out your neighbors names, addresses and phone numbers!

    This is truly amazing...and could be useful.
    Go to website: http://neighbors.whitepages.com/
    Enter your address, and up comes a map of your area...and a list of all neighbors and their phone numbers!

    Thanks Sid pretty cool. But for my neighbourhood I'd say it was 2 years out of date.

    The ability to find your neighbor's personal information is not new. Even before the Internet, as far back as the 1950s, most cities had what was called a "City Directory" that pinned you down by name, phone number, address, occupation, spouse, number of children, etc. They were compiled from a lot of different sources and usually published by the Chamber of Commerce or other business organizations. Today's on-line directories simply make it a little faster to locate you. You cannot hide, so why try?

    Tried it. I wasn't aware that I was married but it says I'm married to Linda Martin, whoever she is. I'll start looking around the house, maybe I've misplaced her. Hope she's OK.

    Pretty cool, but it certainly is outdated.
    I collect expensive hobbies.

    Outdated and yet up to date. The listings in my area show previous homeowners listed along with the current owners. Some have been dead for quite a while.

    Apparently, my father lives with me. He's damned quick, too! I never see him here and he's always at his house when I get there. Or maybe he knows where Linda is?

    But you live in Chicago where being dead doesn't disqualify you from anything.

    So long as they keep on voting and collecting paychecks I guess they have a right to be listed.
