The curse of Craigslist

Dan Kennedy has a good post on how Craigslist (and, etc.) has helped to cripple daily newspapers. Not that it could have been avoided. I'm old enough to remember paying for roommate and personal ads in Bay Windows and waiting for them to mail the responses to me. Then there was the system of charging readers by the minute to listen to classified ads by phone. Nothing like that could have lasted once the Internet caught on.
