Lessons from the list
17 September 2009
George E. Pake Auditorium, PARC
Craig Newmark will present some of the lessons he's learned at craigslist.org. He is collaborating with other organizations to apply some of the lessons from craigslist.org in using the internet for social change and as a platform to give other people a hand.
Craig Newmark is the founder of craigslist.org, a site where people can help each other with everyday needs including housing and jobs. He's also working with a wide range of groups using the Net to help each other out, like Donorschoose.org, the Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America, Kiva.org and LendforPeace.org (microfinance) and Consumer Reports. Craig is also actively engaged with government workers on multiple levels to use the Net for superior public service and with Sunlight Foundation for government accountability and transparency. He's not as funny as he thinks he is, but sometimes can't help himself.
