It is sad that Craigslist have rules and do not enforce then in any way ! I know that everyone is feedup with it all and  it does not matter how many times or people flag these rule breakers  they stay on and keep doing it ! Maybe Craig Newmark should see just what is going on in the Miami sites , I will not ever go their ! I see that Craig is a real nice guy but should check and see for him self what is going on ! he is not losing hundreds or thousands but MILLIONS !!!!! things need to change !

while I don't speak for #craigslist, I'd like to show the list of nonprofits we've supported recently.

If you believe the mission statement of http://www.pih.org/ that "healthcare is a human right," then why not support www.healthcare-now.com and pnhp.org so that it might be a human right in the US, too?

Wow! A fine, thoughtful review of my latest book, SWEEP UP THE SUN, in the New York Times Sunday Book Review.

Take a trip to Bolinas and Visit Keith Hansen. He is a bird god. His studio is magic.

I've just started a media column for the Observer (the New York one). Here is the first outing. A snippet from the start:

Journalists, understandably, will tell you there are too few of their kind left in the world. But considering how much they repeat each others’ work, perhaps the truth is that we have too many of them.

Every day on Google News, you can find hundreds, often thousands of versions of the same news, sometimes when it’s not even new. Why did the world need countless reports on the recent blue moon when the event — merely a calendrical oddity — is perfectly well-explained on Wikipedia? Did every media outlet on earth really have to write its own version of the story of that mysteriously colored dress? Editors send 15,000 journalists to each of the political conventions where nothing unexpected happens (well, unless Donald Trump shows up).

After newspaper newsrooms shrank by another 10.4% last year over the year before — the total workforce cratering to 32,900 from a 1990 high of 56,900 — how can we still afford such inefficiency? Why does the industry produce so much duplication?

The answer, of course, is economic. The problem is the old, mass-media business model, which still sells advertisers volume: a thousand pairs of eyes at a time. As a result, every news organization thinks it needs its own take on any story so it can fill its own page and have a place for its own ad and get its own page view and earn its own pennies for each one....

The rest at the link below....

Hotelling's Law: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotelling%27s_law

[A]n observation in economics that in many markets it is rational for producers to make their products as similar as possible. This is also referred to as the principle of minimum differentiation as well as Hotelling's "linear city model". The observation was made by Harold Hotelling (1895–1973) in the article "Stability in Competition" in Economic Journal in 1929.[1]

Hello Mr. Newmark.  Hope this is the correct contact for the founder of Craig's List.  If so, maybe there can be assistance with referrals to places to contact regarding losing money from a scam job posted on Craig's List.

I finally got around to seeing the Darth Vader gargoyle at the National Cathedral.  Wish I had something longer than a 400mm lens!
