“Tracey and Dan’s Craigslist ad was the second thing that came up in the search,” said Tammy. “I was able to call them up and talk to them in secret without needing outside sources or having to drive anywhere.”
“The Internet has changed everything about adoption,” said Denise Bierly, President of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys. “We will never go back to what it used to be.”

What do Craigslist and Apple have in common? Besides coming down heavy with the lawsuits of late, both are now using OpenStreetMap — after spurning competition (in Apple’s case, Google; in Craigslist’s case, PadMapper) that used alternate mapping systems. Interesting.

PadMapper still has a lot of other sources, I’ll be adding more, and I’ll keep mapping pads, but it’s a sad day for pad mapping and apartment hunting. Craigslist is a really important source of apartment listings, and I hope we can get it back someday.
PadMapper founder and CEO Eric DeMenthon • Discussing the recent cease-and-desist order he received from Craigslist. His site, which effectively made searching for apartments on Craigslist and elsewhere much easier by pinpointing locations on a map, ran afoul of Craigslist’s terms of service, which prevents sites from scraping Craigslist’s content, even if it improves the site’s own offering. Craigslist, the market leader, has famously been averse to changes, even changes created by outside companies using their data, and unlike many sites of its nature, has refused to create an API to easily allow for mashups such as this one. Think Craigslist will ever change?

Craigslist — Craigslist! — is hiring people to work on its user interface and front-end design. Wonder what sort of candidates they’re going to Drudge up. (ht TechCrunch)

Note to NYC Craigslist users: Hurry up or you might miss out on the opportunity to be Bosom Buddies with a Tom Hanks lookalike. No clue what ”full experience” means but maybe he turns into Forrest Gump at the end of the night?! Possibly.

I’m a Marine and I’m not going to run from a fight. You wouldn’t want a Marine to run from a fight. Call me crazy, call me stupid. I got shot once and it just angered me more. I wanted to get this guy. I got shot twice, and I re-evaluated that decision. I decided I need to stay alive.
Florida-based Marine vet Lt. Col Karl Trenker • Discussing how he got shot, days before Christmas, in a Craigslist-transaction-gone-bad. The Iraq and Afghanistan vet’s fiance tried selling a man’s gold-chain necklace, but Trenker offered to make the transaction due to safety concerns, which turned out to be correct, as the alleged buyer picked up the necklace and ran. Trenker ran after the man, known only as “Galven,” only to get shot twice. Here’s the dramatic part: Following his training as a Marine (29 years experience), he plugged the bullet holes with his fingers, a move which likely saved his life. Say what you will about the Craigslist transaction (it certainly wasn’t the best idea), but that’s pretty amazing, no matter how you look at the situation. source (viafollow)
