Craiglist's challenge to print business models

"Just as Craig Newmark is trying to disaggregate editorial from advertising, there are thousands of people out there who are trying to dismember a newspaper and are providing very rich, deep sites. A newspaper is a mile wide and an inch deep - these sites are an inch wide and a mile deep. Newspapers can either bitterly resent this and say 'that's not what we do', or say 'this is an interesting, different way of doing business so we will adapt what we do'."
- Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger
