Craig Newmark and Craigslist: THEY ROCK

I’m happy to report our good pal Craig Newmark of Craigslist fame is featured in a NYTimes.com piece.  Some silly shenanigans on the part of the corporate folks at eBay trying to corrupt Craig’s ever-sensible 21st Century approach to commerce and all things internet. Blah-blah-blah.

Still, there are great insights in the piece into Craig’s modus operandi and his attitude toward the undeserved criticism laid at his doorstep by newspaper publishers across the land. This little story makes for a good read.

I love being reminded that Craig believes—STILL—in the power of the internet to deliver goodness and honesty all in the hands of the people. Woot.

Many of you readers came to me one way or another through the Craigslist Housing Forums or through ads I posted (for FREE!) on CL. So, here’s the link to the Times bit.   Happy reading and remember, MORE POWER TO CRAIG!
