It sounds like many of these new Craig’s List applications implement a more intuitive interface and display their information in a prettier way. However, Big Bad Craig can prevent these companies from “scraping their data” which I take to be ripping Craig’s apartment information and repackaging it on another site. The solution for apartment start-ups then is to not only present data in an engaging and easy to use way, but also to cultivate their own buyer/seller market by creating a new, non-Craig Craig’s List.
