24 Hours on Craigslist

Even 82 minutes seems an eternity. Michael Ferris Gibson organized this pastiche video documentary through craigslist.org, the “goodwill marketplace” launched by San Francisco entrepreneur Craig Newmark in 1995; patrons of the site were invited to post their own stories, and Gibson sent out eight video crews to shoot San Franciscans who responded on August 4, 2003. The site is used by a wide array of people—from musicians to romance seekers to sexual adventurers to a rich housewife selling off her collection of strollers—but many of those interviewed are irritating show-offs. The net effect is weirdly reminiscent of taking part in any online community, where a “relationship” is more like a juxtaposing of egos.
