Craigslist, eBay on Weekday

You might have thought it was a paid infomercial for Craig's List over on KUOW's Weekday today because the comments were so blasted positive. But it's just the natural love one feels for a listing and forum service that's local (even my hometown of Eugene, Oregon, now has its own subsite) and free (except for job listings in a few cities).

People were ranting about eBay's performance, costs, and fraud control, while raving about Craig's List ease and utility. They had the CEO of Craig's List on (which is not Craig himself), and he was a very dry and honest guy. Sales tax issues? Not my speciality, he said, and he didn't attempt to make up an answer.

It's a good listen.
