Craigslist: A Company of Makers

As people who hate meetings, we were particularly taken with one paragraph from this wonderful piece on the unlikely success of Craigslist. Among the counterintuitive business practices that help the company thrive: “Only programmers, customer service reps, and accounting staff work at Craigslist. There is no business development, no human resources, no sales. As a result, there are no meetings.” Of course they can’t have meetings. They’re too busy making things. (HT: Kottke) [%comments]
