Ebay: Will Kijiji and Craig divide the planet?

EBay takes the local/global mix to a new level with the roll out of Kijiji (can you spell that?–it means village in Swahili), a community/listings service that has a l ot in common with Bakotopia at first glance–and that launches with no English-speaking sites (nice touch, that).

A look at the interface shows similarities with both eBay and Craigslist, but the spirit of it seems pure Craig’s. Interestingly, of the 50 sites launched, only Berlin and Tokoyo overlap with existing Craigslist sites.

Does this mean Kijiji and Craig are going to divide the planet?
