"Jim Buckmaster: craigslist CEO/comedian"

craigslist, delivering useful entertaining services, as noted by Matthew Ingram:

Who knew that Jim Buckmaster, the CEO of the massively popular craigslist classified advertising/community, was such a funny guy? Not yuck-yuck, clown-in-a-little-car funny, but insightful and funny in a very dry and laid-back sort of way. And there’s a lot of Jim to lay back, since he’s very tall — six-foot-seven or so, I believe.

For example, Jim was asked by someone what was the weirdest thing he’s ever seen on craigslist, and Buckmaster said at first that he couldn’t mention some of them in mixed company, and then said he had found a couple in the “best of” section of the Toronto site of all places — including one in which a woman said “Spadina subway station, I spilled my grandmother on you (because I was carrying an urn with her ashes in it); think we got off to a bad start, would love to have coffee.”

Let me introduce my new startup service for your blog:
http://www.speakageline.com
SpeakageLine is an instant website publisher tool for any voice or video message that is sent by a phone.

You are provided with your own landline based number in your country; to post messages simply call the number speak your piece and hangup. Speakageline will add a nifty header jingle and background music about fifteen seconds after you've recorded your message and place the recording on the site automatically; you can choose to a add a title or edit your message via your web browser There's no technical know needed whatsoever. It's also compatible with most blogger platforms. You can even create a video if you've a cameraphone; or you can create your own radio program with interviews via the conference mechanism. You also can leave your speakageline number on your website so that readers can record their own comments providing for facilitated interaction.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

completely agree with this. I’m making an attempt to determine what running a blog application to use, and its visibility to yahoo is important to me. Taking a known tumblr weblog, I attempted hunting what the Title of the weblog is, AND direct prices from the blog’s articles. Didn’t come up in the first 5 search results pages!
