24 Hours on Craigslist (video)
Wow, what an interesting documentary! Craigslist is basically a giant Internet community bulletin board (with no ads!), and the documentary follows people who placed ads during one 24-hour period in 2003, in San Francisco, the city where Craigslist originated. I had no idea there were this many weird and wonderful people out there. What I liked almost as much as the film itself was the special feature, "Who is Craig??," which interviews the staff of Craigslist (including Craig himself) about why they do what they do.
