Manga Man, Danny Choo, wants to be the Craig Newmark (Craigslist founder) for Tokyo! He's added a classified section to his massive blog. He discovered that people like those little ads and is offering his site because he noticed many people from the same neighborhood already using the site to communicate. He calls himself a full time nerd and his site reflects his love of Tokyo.

Implications - Creating a website like Craigslist for different countries is an excellent idea because it is so valuable. Danny Choo knows that the site is a great idea, but he also knows that it does have a dangerous side. He says to the site's users, "please be careful and use good judgement regarding who you trust."
