Craigslist is probably one of the best “inventions” of the last 20 years, taking a the really simple idea of uniting people who are looking for something (anything) and put it online and made it geocentrically searchable. Now media designer Ian Coyle has taken this ultra-simple service and streamlined it even more. It’s called crgslst, and it’s like the hot, skinny, younger brother of craigslist.

Now instead of the clunky, jumbled (but classic) way of searching, everything is taken down to it’s bare bones and put into a cleaner search interface. It’s pretty interesting to see what can be done with something that people are used to with just a little bit of ingenuity.

Found through Paul Isakson
