How to describe Brett Fletcher Lauer's project Ships that Pass?
I'll let The Funky Apple do the honors. In a nutshell:
"One of the best things about Craigslist's Missed Connections sections is the replies. Not every post about lost love on the L train gets a reply. Nay, only the truly passionate, absurd, or insane posts are honored with a response."
"The problem is, not every real-life connection warrants a response. But the fake missed connections...well, that's a different story. And that's just the premise that blogger Brett Fletcher Lauer runs with on his blog, Ships that Pass, where Lauer posts his fake missed connections along with the real responses they generate."
"It's quite simple, really. Make up a brilliant missed connection, post it to craigslist, and wait for replies. Some of the replies are heart warming, others are hilarious, but unlike posts, they're all real."
My fake missed connection W4W Chicago Wicker Park: DESPERATELY SEEKING SOMETHING LIKE ARIZONA, LOS ANGELES OR MISSOURI is up at Ships That Pass.
