$550mm in revs?
Adam Lashinsky is one of the top guys covering the vc and tech industry in silicon valley.
This week he has an article about cragslist in which he suggests that if Craigslist was fully commercial, it would be doing $550mm in annual revenues.
I am not in a position to debate that number, but I've long said that craigslist is one of the companies we admire most at Union Square Ventures. It's got 18 employees. Surely it would take more than that to handle $550mm in revenues, but maybe not a lot more.
Something to think about. Hard.
