Brooklyn’s version of Cupid uses e-mails instead of arrows.
Luke DuBois, a digital media whiz at NYU-Poly, has created a website that tries to reunite the lonely hearts using Craigslist’s “Missed Connections” personals by matching descriptive words from their ads.
“What if in our idle moments, the computer was searching the community to connect people?” said DuBois, who is 36 years old and single. “It may not be the best way to find love, but it’s cute.”
