Whilst trawling through my regular RSS feeds last month, I came across this plea from Min Jung Kim:
"I’ve decided to try and move forward with keeping my phat apartment and finding 3 new roommates for the place. Instead of going the blind craigslist route, I’m hoping that friends or friends-of-friends will help me hook this up."
Then, a few days later, I saw this post from Sergio Villarreal:
"I’ll be moving to San Francisco shortly, and I could use some help finding a nice apartment near public transportation. I’m also one hell of a roommate (feel free to construe that as you like), so if you’re looking, do drop me a line."
I made both authors aware of the other’s blog post.
