An open letter to Craigslist

By Steve Outing

Over on ReinventingClassifieds.com, I’ve posted “An open letter to Craigslist.” I’d love to read your reactions — and your ideas added on to my own — so please join in the comments thread there!

Briefly, the premise is that Craigslist could help out the newspaper industry — and it’s in Craig’s interest to do so. Based on public statements from Craigslist executives Craig Newmark and Jim Buckmaster, I think that they might like to help save the jobs of professional journalists.

    Hi Steven,

    I’ve just tried to write to you via your contact form but for some reason I cannot fill out the spam box – the letters I type will not appear.

    I just wanted to let you know in case others were having the same problem.

    Carly: I had that problem before but fixed it; might have reappeared with Firefox 3.

    Here’s easy workaround: With cursor in the field above, hit TAB and then you’ll be able to type in the anti-spam code.

    Thanks, and sorry for the bother.
