Craigslist Is A Community, Not An Application

A few days ago, I read of Rohit's speculation about an "open source" craigslist. At the time I wanted to shake my head and write something about how he's completely missing the point.

But I was lazy and they had comments disabled (excuses, excuses).

Luckily Tony Gentile has already done it.

Craigslist isn't about the software; that's easily replicated. It's about:

a) Community; and

b) "Capital" that allows them to (comparitvely) reach marketplace inflection points (the point at which a market becomes self sustaining) in different verticals in different geographies more efficiently than their competitors (to date).


Exactly.

Rohit, craigslist is a communal product of Craig Newmark and those who've been active in the craisglist community ever since he unleashed the service. Please explain what source code has to do with any of this.

This reminds me, I need to write my post about the eventual downfall of eBay one of these days.
