craigslist exposed

It claims to be an all encompassing site. You need a roommate or apartment? Check. Looking for a new job? Check. Trying to sell that RV that sits in the front yard? Check. But does it actually work. In the first of a series, let's put craigslist to the test.

The first test: Missed Connections. It's a romantic notion isn't it? Your eyes connect from across the street/produce aisle/Starbucks/free clinic. But why sack up and approach the person you've shared that magical connection with when you can just scurry home and send an anonymous note through the series of tubes that is the internet? With this inspiration, I try to find a missed connection.

Missed Connection: Food Court, m4w

There will be many more to come. Trust me.
