heard at tonight’s talk with Craig Newmark, founder of Craig’s list.
Audience: so when someone requests a new city to be added, what happens, you put it up and email them and it’s up to them to get the word out?
Craig: I wish I was that organized. I wish I was organized enough to email them back.
OMG, he doesn’t email them back. He not only doesn’t promote new cities; he doesn’t even email them back.
Audience: how much of your traffic come from search engines
Craig: we don’t know
Audience: are you afraid that google or someone will take your audience?
Craig: we don’t think of them as competition. There is plenty of room for everyone.
it’s a different way to be. And they thrive. Kinda makes you question accepted wisdom, doesn’t it?
