A friend of mine was at a search engine strategies conference last week, and sent me these employment numbers, which are really staggering:
- Skype has 200 employees
- YouTube has 60 employees
- Craigslist has 20 employees
(I think those numbers came from Nicholas Carr, but I'm not positive.)
I would have guessed at numbers much higher than those. Hopefully that makes everyone at YouTube a billionaire, or at least a millionaire.
