The analysis of Craigslist competitors 2011 Vs 2022 is misleading.

Some of those companies that "failed" had pretty great outcomes. For example, CodeAcademy sold for over $500 million - not bad for a media business! Elance and Odesk merged and rebranded as Upwork, currently worth over $2 billion.

Really enjoyed understanding the 'Density' part, and how Network Density can kill a Network - till now I always assumed 'More Dense' -> The better, but in case of Craiglist - More is Not Better - as handling more density poses different Set of Challenges.

Do you think a Better Discovery Mechanism can help solve Dense Networks?
