Wired on Craigslist

In the newest edition of Wired Magazine, Gary Wolf tears Craigslist a new one. He basically asks, “Why are crap advertisements rampant on Craigslist, resembling the forums and chat rooms of the internet in the 90’s?” when there are very easy solutions to resolving the current mess.

Have you ever been to Craigslist.com? The–lack of–visual design is hard to bear. Links upon links upon links just scattered everywhere. A simple interface that organized all of those links, such as a few drop down or search menus in key areas, would do them well. How about an ‘advanced search’ page, such as those found on pretty much any website that requires searching for specific items? Nope, that would be too easy.
