Via Gapers Block I first heard about Freecycle. It is an interesting idea – a group of people who give away stuff that they would otherwise pitch and put into the landfills. I like the idea, but balked when I see that the way you get involved – at least in Chicago – is by joining a Yahoogroups mailing list with over 2000 members and over 500 emails a month. Yikes, I don’t need that in my life. What would be good is some way to tie this in with listings on Craigslist or something that doesn’t require getting a zillion individual mails or scanning a bulging digest every day.
