Folks, people ask me why I'm permanently committed to my job as customer service rep at craigslist.
Also asked: why I'm not
interesting in selling the company.
The deal is that my personal mission, my twist on public service, means that I
gotta stay firmly part of the grassroots, the virtual street.
My permanent personal commitment to customer service helps make that happen.
Days ago, I realized that I'm not interested in selling because too much money
tends to sever one's connection to the grassroots.
Money can change you, and I
resist that kind of thing.
(... and please indulge me, here's a really important story on craigslist.)
