classified, originally uploaded by JamesB.

I’ve been using classified ads recently to try and get a variety of things including childminders.  For services like childminding physical classified ads just seem to be more appropriate… I only wanted people who lived in walking distance to where we live and I wanted people who were able were part of the ‘community’ that use the post office where I posted the ad – it gave me a sense of safety and trust, of an already filtered ‘social’, which the internet just couldn’t seem to offer me. Do physical geographic contexts still provide something the internet is unable to?

I hasten to add that this image is of another window, a different community where ‘kwiktan’ operates; I didn’t post here.
