Newspapers Don't Know Craig
from the competition?--what's-that? dept
Despite all of the evidence that Craigslist represents a real challenge in competing for revenue that used to go to newspapers, it turns out that most newspaper editors have never heard of Craig Newmark or Craigslist -- and many seem to disregard the idea that an amazingly popular site of (mostly) free classifieds could possibly compete with them. However, the situation might get even worse for those newspapers, as Craig has indicated a few times that he may start competing with them even more, by launching a "citizen journalism" project related to Craigslist.
