Craiglist reaches a billion page views

Craiglist has reached a billion page views per month and has expanded its $75 fee per job listing into New York and Los Angeles in addition to San Francisco. Craiglist is an excellent example of the new media paradigm. It started grassroots and has built its business from the bottom up, word of mouth, one person at a time.
"When asked whether he understands that newspapers feel terribly threatened by Craigslist, he replied: 'I know they're worried about us; I wouldn't say threatened. If they're worried about us, they're worried about the wrong thing.'"
