Tribe: Fortune Small Biz Drinks the KoolAid

Fortune Small Business has a nifty story on Marc Pincus and Tribe. At the same time that the writer bats him a round a bit for being a copycat ‘serial entrepreneur’, she gets out of the way and lets Mark get in some great sound bytes, like this one:
“Tribe.net is the next generation of online classifieds. Local and community classifieds is still a $12 billion business, with no market leader. Add another $4 billion to $5 billion for online. With Tribe, you connect only with your friends and your friends’ friends, and you’re more likely to trust their listings for a roommate because they’re not coming from strangers, as they would in the newspaper or on Craigslist.”
Newspaper classifieds need lots of help right now-they are dying. Way to go, Mark.
