    Well they say:

    Midland Crowd
    Southern Satellites
    Salt of the Earth


    Funny, they don't mention anything about:
    Beer drinking
    Sports
    Grilling

    Both my home zip and the zip of the town next door that I used to work for:
    Boomburbs
    Up and coming families
    Sophisticated squires

    The town next door that I went to grade-school in and currently work in:
    Up and coming families
    Silver and gold (describes wealthy seniors; included likely due to the presence of a large Del Webb community)
    Exurbanites

    My college town:
    Dorms to diplomas
    Main Street, USA
    Exurbanites

    The zip where I spent my early childhood in (closer-in suburb of Chicago):
    Enterprising professionals
    International marketplace
    Main Street, USA

    Interesting thought: which tapestry segment do you fit in versus your zip code?

    For example, I'm probably a cross between Urban Chic and In-Style, but my zip code is College Towns, Old and Newcomers and Crossroads.

    Linky to Definitions of Tapestry Segments

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    I seem to fit in between "Enterprising Professionals" and "Young and Restless", perhaps leaning more to the latter. So apparently I should mesh well with my neighbors (or at least we're mostly in the same tapestry).

    ESRI makes me sound cool...

    The Homestead
    Old and Newcomers
    Connoisseurs
    Urban Chic

    The Paycheck
    Urban Melting Pot
    Trendsetters
    Retirement Communities


    Edit: I like the charts at the bottom with demographics. Super Geography Geeky!

    Edit2: Can I just add how odd I find it that all 3 of the tapestries that ESRI labeled my neighborhood list "white" as the primary ethnicity, yet 60% of my neighborhood is Asian. Just saying.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I just ran it for Williamsville 14221, and got this.

    It also offered me a free hot stone massage and Bikram Yoga class, and insulted me for not wearing a The North Face jacket.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    What a rip! WSU and I live in the same town but I sure the heck did not get these results! Maybe I need to slow down hanging out on cyburbia and find me a rich wife?

    It seems you need to move from the wrong side of the tracks at least.
