"The power of place will be remarkable."
-- Aristotle

San Pedro, Calif.
Despite the growth of fast-food restaurants, national retail chains, suburban sprawl, the global economy and the Internet, geography matters.

We see the sense of place thriving in thousands of cities, suburbs and villages.

Americans are emotionally attached to multiple places, from the neighborhoods of their childhood to their alma maters, from favorite vacation spots to past homes.

Yearning for one place while living in another is a typically American state of mind. Every year, one out of every six Americans changes address; 8.5 million young adults leave home to enroll in college; and 66 million U.S. adults take a trip that includes a visit to a historic or cultural site.

Yet the cultural and historical details that evoke place cannot be conveyed by statistics, maps or lists of Web links. By celebrating the unique and irreplaceable, ePodunk goes beyond population numbers to the ineffable things that define the essence of a neighborhood with literary excerpts, local events, notable personalities and history.

By culling facts from thousands of sources, ePodunk has compiled profiles with content and scope unique to the Web. This information is designed to be "plugged in" to existing sites and wireless services, as a complement to travel information, maps, weather forecasts, Web site directories and other information about place.
