Coupla Bros Seek CL Wedding Dates

February 20, 2013

As reported in New York Magazine:

Dave and Mike had a problem: The bros (in every sense of the word) have been told that they must bring dates to their cousin’s upcoming wedding in order to prevent them from “harassing” the bride’s friends all night.

Asked how their family is going to react to the stunt, one brother [said]: “Out of boredom I tried to convince my dad at Christmas that I’d gone gay now because the lifestyle just suits me better. He was very confused and extremely unamused. I’d imagine he’ll have the same response to this once we just keep repeating, ‘We’ve gone viral, pop.'”

distracted guy hires face slapper, talks smack

October 18, 2012

In a throwback to the roaring 20s, Maneesh Sethi recruited a slapper off CL to give him a hand in staying on task, and saw his productivity quadrupule.

Said Sethi, “How could I leverage Craigslist to improve my efficiency. To me, the answer was obvious: I hired a girl on Craigslist to slap me in the face everytime I used Facebook.”

For a mere $8/hr, can you afford not join him in this arms race?

Trading Post

July 29, 2010

Enterprising CL user Steven Ortiz has reportedly traded his way up from an old cell phone to a porsche in Glendora, CA.

Not bad, although fellow barterer Kyle MacDonald traded up from a red paper clip to a house in Saskatchewan in 2008.

Hmmm, wonder what I could get for 10 tea bags of rich, robust Guayaki fair trade Yerba Maté?

Mere Happenstance?

May 18, 2010

Here are the top 5 search providers, as ranked by Comscore for March 2010. Just for fun I’ve added % growth since January 2009, when Jeremy Zawodny(formerly at Yahoo) replaced craigslist’s old search architecture:

1. Google 13,996,000,000 19%
2. Yahoo 2,839,000,000 -5%
3. Microsoft 1,883,000,000 58%
4. Ask 719,000,000 11%
5. craigslist 685,000,000 38%

Wonder how CL would rank if we were actually in the search business?

CO Lt Governorship up for grabs

May 13, 2010

In regard to the responses his ad has generated so far, he resists breaking down percentages by serious inquiries versus goofs. “That’s a judgment call, right?” he asks, laughing. But he’s been impressed with the quality of quite a few contacts — although, thus far, the best of the batch are folks who weren’t listed as independents prior to the aforementioned deadline. “They’ll say, ‘I’m registered as a Republican, but I’ll switch,’” he allows. “And unfortunately, that won’t work.”

However, he’s got around fifteen new submissions he hasn’t had a chance to examine thus far, giving him confidence that he’ll find a worthy running mate by his planned announcement press conference, slated for 5 p.m. Friday, May 28
