MESH07 | Craigslist

Jim Buckmaster, CEO of Craigslist spoke most unassumingly about their company.

Some notes:

– 7 Bn page views annually
– 500K news ads monthly in Canada
– 24 staff

Every question about strategy, vision, and future, was answered in a similar fashion – its all about the users. They have a laser focus on user input, and either implement, or at least explain why they are unable to do so.

Favourite quote: we don’t sit around in business planning meetings, planning things, actually we don’t have meetings, actually, we don’t have business people …. “
