Internet tunes: Craiglist Hookup – Missed Connections

In: , , , , , ,

Kate Allen has a great article in yesterday’s Toronto Star about the phenomenon that is Craigslist’s Missed Connections. It features the true story of a couple who met through MC two years ago…so yes, you can find love that way.

Kate interviewed me for the story, too, quoting my comment on one dimension of Missed Connections’ success:

Checking Craigslist is something you can do in two minutes..When you look at what’s taken off on the Web over the past year, it’s activities you can fit into those interstitial moments.

When I talked to Kate for this story, I pointed her towards the Craigslist song that I blogged a couple of weeks ago. I forgot that I had an even more appropriate track — a showtune, no less! Here’s Craigslist Hookup – Missed Connections from Williamsburg! the musical.

    So glad I found your screencast about ManyMoon and thus your blog – because I would have never seen this article. I have been looking for a missed connections success story for years. thanks!
