Awesome Infrographic: Superlatives Used in Missed Connections


Like most urbanites, we find the Missed Connections section on Craigslist to be a fascinating source of endless entertainment. We can only guess that artist Ingrid Burrington, who founded the Center for Missed Connections back in 2009, feels the same way. “The Center for Missed Connections (CMC) began as a project simply to identify where the most missed connections happen in a given city,” she writes. “Since then, the analysis has developed a thorough taxonomy of the Missed Connection and a method for identifying whether one has, in fact, had a Missed Connection. The CMC seeks to understand the longing, both poetic and banal, within public spaces.” Above, one of the pretty charts that has come out of Burrington’s research. Visit the CMC’s website to check out a larger version, and head over to Runnin’ Scared for a fascinating interview with the artist about her work. [via Daily Intel]
