Tag: Craig Newmark
I had the privilege of interviewing Craig Newmark from Craigslist at the 2.Ohio event in Columbus on Oct 10th. Craig is a humble, soft spoken, no-ego kind of guy…which is amazing considering the proliferation and popularity of his website, Craigslist.com. Even on his business card, his title is “customer service rep. & founder”… (notice which designation is first?) What a lesson for us all.
I hope you enjoy this “real life” interview. This was done on the fly with a very cheap video camera. The questions were not scripted ahead of time nor were Craig’s responses…this is just real convo coming at you via video…enjoy.
If you were fortunate enough to attend 2.Ohio yesterday at the Hilton Polaris, you had the pleasure of hearing from Reid Hoffman (Founder of LinkedIn), Judy Estrin (author of Closing the Innovation Gap, former CTO of Cisco and current CEO of JLabs) and Mike Nelson, (Professor at Georgetown and volunteer for the Obama campaign).
If that’s not enough IT talent for you, mingling with the audience, before and after the event, were Brian Behlendorf (important figure in the open source movement and primary developer of the Apache Web Server) and Craig Newmark (Founder of Craigslist)!
