Jalopnik: "Starting with an old cell phone a friend gave him, 17-year-old Steven Ortiz of Glendora, CA, used Craigslist to trade up 14 times over two years to eventually end up with a Porsche Boxster. Here's how he did it.
Although Steven Oritz's story isn't the first time we've seen Craigslist-swapping writ large, it's the first one we've seen without any "outside help." Many may remember Kyle MacDonald who famously created a website to document his attempt to trade one red paperclip for a house. It worked. But MacDonald also had a built-in fan base and internet publicity from his website.
Ortiz, a 17-year-old high schooler, had no such help. Instead, he spent the better part of two years tied to his iPhone, skimming Craigslist and carefully picking out trades he knew he could benefit from."
Craigslist might have been one of the last vestiges of the '90s web, but that all changes now as it finally has apps for Android and iOS.
The Senate has been pushing for stricter regulations on sex trafficking and the adult, consenting sex industry. Due to the Senate passing their H.R.1865 bill, or Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA), which is an anti-online sex trafficking bill, the online ad-posting site Craigslist had to shut down all of their personal sections.
