“I Wish I Said Hello” isn’t the first website to put an artistic spin on Craigslist’s Missed Connections section (Sophie Blackall created a blog dedicated to creating hand-drawn renderings of particularly poignant Missed Connections in NYC) but it adds a novel twist to the subject, by pasting stickers representing Missed Connections that can be tied back to specific locations.
