I was setting up a breakfast for my family and I need to drill a hole. I don’t want to pay a drill/hammer/saw man, but I can’t use power tools either. I’m going to use rockwall.

Craigslist

Craigslist is a fantastic personal ad listing site that is often the cheapest and easiest way to find the perfect used item. Though it has been debated that these “buyers” rather than simply finding stuff they may need are looking to make a profit off another person's unwanted items, in more cases than not, there is typically great deals to be found.

Having observed people helping one another in friendly, social, and trusting communal ways on the Internet via the WELL, MindVox and Usenet, and feeling isolated as a relative newcomer to San Francisco, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark decided to create something similar for local events.

In the fall of 1998, the name "List Foundation" was introduced and Craigslist started transitioning to the use of this name. In April 1999, when Newmark learned of other organizations called "List Foundation", the use of this name was dropped. Craigslist incorporated as a private for-profit company in 1999.

Use

Craigslist is a website where individuals and businesses can post classified ads. The site was founded by Craig Newmark in the San Francisco Bay Area in July 1995.

In 2006, composer Gabriel Kahane released an album of his satirical art songs for voice and piano, entitled "Craigslistlieder", using excerpts from real Craigslist ads as text. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Craigslist is not only gigantic in scale and totally resistant to business cooperation, it is also mostly free. The only things that cost money to post on the site are job ads in some cities ($25 to $75), apartment listings by brokers in New York ($10), and—in a special case born of recent legal trouble—advertisements in categories commonly used by prostitutes, because authorities encourage vendors to maintain a record that would aid investigators. There is no banner advertising. They won't let you join them, and at this price you can't beat them either. (Source: www.wired.com)
