Before we hyperventilate any further about all this, can we take a moment to recall that around ten years ago, everyone was hyperventilating over how Microsoft was going to take over classified advertising?

Yeah, but Google might actually invest in the sucker...I smell a Google/CraigsList alliance...two philosophies that play nicely with one another. Diggin' the blog, fanks.

Thank you. From what I keep hearing google is going to take over the world. Tomorrow. If google even does half the things everyone gets so excited about then it will so overextend itself that it will surely suffer a major defeat. Why is it that every time we get excited about the internet’s potential again we all start to believe that things like core competencies and focus do not matter any more.
