New Craigslist -

Looking for: Designer, Developer, Engineer
We all love craigslist, but it has become too closed minded.  I want to develop a new Craigslist that is more open.  Enter:
I want it to be simple to use, yet open to 3rd party developers.  The hardest part would be entering the market.  I want to use not only to get the funding needed to buy the equipment, but also to have a good amount of users for the beta.  Unfortunently I only have good business sense, I am not a programer.  I need someone who can work with me to develope my ideas and program the site.  When we have a rough idea of the site, and parts built that we can show the public (kickstarter) then we move to developing a kickstarter campaign.  Once it is successful we will flesh out the site in preperation for the beta launch, hire a few new developers and engineers and see where it goes from there.   It will be monetized by sponsored links, or banner ads, but that will be decided with my partner down the road, and will not be included in the beta.   I know that a site needs to develop a sense of "cool" before "uncool" ads are added.

I am willing to work around your schedual.  I realize me not doing the programing for the site puts a lot of pressure on any partner that may join.  It will also be for no pay until the kickstarter campaign is done.  It will be hard work, but I know the internet is ready for a new, free, Craigslist.
