BlockChalk allows users to leave messages at locations in their neighborhood using their mobile device. Described as “the voice of your neighborhood,” BlockChalk encourages users to leave notes, or “chalks,” about what’s going on in a certain location. Users can then reply to other users’ chalks.

BlockChalk recently (as of Jan 2010) launched both an iPhone app as well as an API for developers.

BlockChalk encourages users to have twitter-esque conversations about specific locations in their neighborhood. Another promoted use case is finding people nearby to buy/sell used goods with, similar to craigslist.
