The Internet As Your Lost And Found

from the people-are-friendly dept

Would you believe it? There really are plenty of nice people out there who will do their damnedest to return to you something that you lost… if only they had a way to reach you. Luckily, an increasing number of people seem to be turning the internet into a great big lost and found, with people trying to reunite themselves with products lost, or finders trying to be good Samaritans and returning what they found to their rightful owners. Of course, the article doesn’t seem to have too many success stories — and a big part of the problem might be that most people don’t know where to go for such things. The article mainly focuses on Craigslist, but there are still plenty of people who have no clue what Craigslist is for — or who would probably never think to go there for such things. Then again… perhaps that’s the point of the article.
