EBay Buys Into Craigslist

By - August 16, 2004

Back when I went to see Craig Newmark of Craigslist (he’s speaking at Web 2.0), I noted how amazingly successful his gem of a company was, and I asked, “Aren’t you worried you’re going to wake up eBay?”

Well, eBay just finished its cup of coffee, and went and bought 25% of Craig’s company.

Here’s Craig’s take on it in his blog. A lot of comments. Apparently a person (not named) that owned equity in Craigslist was the impetus to the deal, not Craig himself.
