24 Hours on Craigslist
I read somewhere last week (I can’t remember where), that a movie was going to be make about the craiglist community. If you’re not familiar with the list, well it’s basically an online bulletin board where you can find a job, a friend, a therapist, a pet, or anything else your heart desires. Having cruised the site before, I thought, way cool! Here’s what’s written about the movie on their website:
We’re going to take one day, Monday, August 4th, 2003, and make a documentary based on the CL postings from that day. Not just the “Best-Of” or the “Success Stories”, but a real, down-to-earth look at the fastest-growing grassroots cyber-community in the city that started it: San Francisco. Personal ads, job listings, missed connections, homemade helicopter sales, transgender counseling – everything that moves through the flow of the city’s consciousness within a single 24 hour period. There is no script and no agenda other than what the community itself creates on that day, and postings will be followed up to their logical conclusions– days, weeks or perhaps months afterwards. Stories within stories, worlds within worlds, unforeseen connections and unpredictable encounters across all strata of society– it all comes together in “24 Hours on Craigslist.”
In any event, as I was checking out the site today, I came across a rant about how women behave when they’re taking a #2 in a public restroom. I almost keeled over laughing. Funny stuff and oh so true. Go check it out.
