A Few Things Learned from Craigslist by Craig Newmark

A Few Things Learned from Craigslist

Running Time
1 Hr. 12 Min
Craiglist founder Craig Newmark provides a history of his groundbreaking website in this streaming video presented by MIT World. Staying humble despite his immense success (he's still on call for personal customer service when needed!), Newmark details how an experiment in bringing together local markets in the San Francisco Bay Area via the internet blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon that has helped urban dwellers trade all kinds of different commodities and services. At present, he describes himself as a large-scale community organizer, and Newmark's efforts outside of the company reflect an abiding interest in social advocacy. As a result, he feels Craiglist can serve as a model for how ordinary citizens can work together to bring about cooperative change that goes beyond the scope of commerce and into the wider realms of political and social reform.
