I had hoped to derive some model for where to meet people from information on Ann Arbor's Craigslist. It would rank locations based on the relative frequency of being mentioned in missed connections.
For a while the health food stores were pulling strong: the People's Food Co-op, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods were mentioned frequently. Now it seems like the only place that gets listed regularly is the shower/sauna in the CCRB. I think my whole idea for a model suffers from insufficient data. Ann Arbor's missed connections is just too small of a sample size.
