In the wake of the negative publicity surrounding Craigslist’s crackdown on companies scraping their data, Tradyo has launched what they think today's online classifieds should look like.
Their new site focuses on serving you the most relevant items for sale by other people in your area. By using your location, Tradyo tells you exactly how far certain products are from you, and provides a simple and real-time chat within the site and application that allows you to close the deal in minutes, using your phone or your computer.

I arrived a few minutes late for class the other day at the University of Toronto’s Behan Centre. Fortunately, the teacher, outspoken entrepreneur Reza Satchu, hadn’t arrived yet. Here’s the thing about Satchu — he’s a committed molder of young leaders, a founder of the Next 36 program, an eight-month business-building bootcamp designed to turn outstanding undergrads into high-impact entrepreneurs. But I was pleased I got there first, because when Satchu’s running the classroom, you don’t want to catch his eye.
