Funny money

This morning’s New York Post speculates — in the wake of the YouTube deal — that Gawker Media is worth $400 million, CraigsList $250 million, and $200 million. I can hear Nick Denton cackling with derision 20 blocks away. No offense to Nick, but I do think that CraigsList is worth more — except for the likelihood that anybody who’d buy it would ruin it (and the likelihood of it being bought looks quite slight). [I would give you a link to the Post story, by the way, but the page crashed my browser three times thanks to a damned ad or their damned overeager Flash.]
