etsy.gif, a marketplace of handmade goods, was designed, conceived and implemented in about 2 months by a group of college grads living all over the country. They were able to implement the project from disparate locations using chatrooms and their friendships to do the work. In slightly over a year, they have grown to over 12,000 artists and 80,000 items sold. Now, over fifty Etsy sellers quit their day job to make Etsy selling their way to make a living.

“We wanted to create a marketplace to sell the goods that was as unique as the goods themselves.” — Robert Kalin, founder in an interview with Leo Laporte
