kottke: Craigslist and Cottage Industries

Jason Kottke writes about how Craigslist is helping small businesses grow. A snippet:
“I’d never really thought about it before, but in some ways, CL helps lots of people build businesses cheaper and more effectively than more “robust”, complex, and expensive enterprise software solutions. Movers are just one example. CL can help you find employees for your business. If you’ve got a van, you can pick up free furniture and electronics around the city, fix or refurbish, and sell it.”
