Craigslist postings transmitted to space

On May 15, 2005 the Deep Space Communications Network will transmit craigslist postings, a video message from Craig Newmark, and a clip from “24 Hours on craigslist” from Cape Canaveral into space.

This announcement seems like an April Fool’s joke. A view of Earth through craigslist postings would be an odd cross-section of our culture. Hopefully the Voyager interstellar records are discovered first.
