Donna Bogatin, who as of yesterday was the leading blogger at zdnet, has started her own effort now.
She's started with a much too kind interview with me; I suspect I was a little too relaxed, but anyway, enjoy it here:
During our wide ranging discussion, we spoke about how negativity fuels a big part of big media work. Why is that so? Craig suggested that what gets people’s attention is “anger or comedy.” Craig quickly added, “my life is a sitcom!” We all tend to exaggerate for comedy relief, Craig said.
While all our lives may be like sitcoms, Craigslist strives for creating a “culture of trust” at Craigslist, the “online flea market.” A neighborhood flea market is as much about socializing as it is about commerce, Craig underscored. Craiglsist moves the commerce as social experience to the Web, Craig noted.
