During our experiments, we had a Craigslist "bad date". Unsolicited invitations from male escorts ensured the subject of sexual solicitation would be discussed heavily in the media. As one detective put it, “I think this is the second or third trial now. I don’t think the first one worked because the escort didn’t recognize himself”.

Craigslist

Some Craigslist sites cover large regions instead of individual metropolitan areas—for example, the U.S. states of Delaware and Wyoming, the Colorado Western Slope, the California Gold Country, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are among the locations with their own Craigslist sites.

People trying to get technical positions filled found that the list was a good way to reach people with the skills they were looking for. This led to the addition of a jobs category. User demand for more categories caused the list of categories to grow. The initial technology encountered some limits, so by June 1995 Majordomo had been installed and the mailing list "Craigslist" resumed operations. Community members started asking for a web interface. Newmark registered "craigslist.org", and the website went live in 1996.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.

Work

Craigslist is a place where people can post ads for work and products. Craigslist is great if you are looking for a temporary job—whether it’s as a waitress, a car mechanic, or someone who cleans houses for a living. Most people list on Craigslist for things like freelance graphic design jobs or event planning. If a person is looking for a house cleaner, they might even list their experience. So, no matter what you are looking for, you will find it on Craigslist.

Each of these sites, of course, is merely one of the many sections of craigslist, which dominates the market in facilitating face-to-face transactions, whether people are connecting to buy and sell, give something away, rent an apartment, or have some sex. With more than 47 million unique users every month in the US alone—nearly a fifth of the nation's adult population—it is the most important community site going and yet the most underdeveloped. Think of any Web feature that has become popular in the past 10 years: Chances are craigslist has considered it and rejected it. If you try to build a third-party application designed to make craigslist work better, the management will almost certainly throw up technical roadblocks to shut you down. (Source: www.wired.com)
