The founder of Craigslist went to an internet media conference where most of the discussion was about “monetizing pageviews,” and made people scratch their heads because his super-successful website has never been about making money and he has no plans to move it in that direction. These wall street types had trouble grasping the concept of running a website for fun and as a pure service. The article from the NY Times about it is cute. Actually I think it’s really good that the NYT is pointing out that such sites still exist.
