Craigslist, Meet Bangkok

Him, from His Words, has let me know that Craigslist has expanded to include Bangkok! Check it out here.

In the meantime, the heavens have opened their floodgates and the normally nice view of the surrounding buildings has been replaced by a thick grey curtain through which I am barely able to see the outline of the AIA building, thunder that rattles the windows and lightning that makes me save my work every 60 seconds.

It’s the kind of weather that makes you wish you were at home.

    Why would anyone want to use craigslist here? I have discovered a new classified site on MSN, which is much nicer, has an English version and obviously is for free as well. Seems to have personals as well….and pictures…

    Eh? I don’t get you. Explain to me again why this MSN thing is better?

    I think it’s better because
    – it’s unusually fast for a Thai site
    – you can post pictures
    – it enables commerce with Thai people
    – it’s much better organised

    Just my POV, obviosuly there are not a lot of people posting in English yet, but some Thais seem to get the idea and start to post in English.

    “Why would anyone want to use craigslist here?”. Well, because it’s a globally recognised resource wuth a decent business plan, it doesnt seek to take advantage at every turn. No? Read this and this. MSN? Oh, please, leave that kind of thing to the people who are sold on fancy graphics and big blue buttons.

    Yes sure, these guys are all philantropists, and everything they want to do is give away stuff for free. It is actually catching free-thinking spirits and turns them into defenders of what is by now the classified establishment.

    What is wrong with better functionality? And why does it have to look shoddy at all?
