Minter Dialogue Episode #174
This interview is with Craig Newmark, a self-described nerd, Web pioneer and advocate of technology for the public good. Craig is also the founder of Craigslist, the classifieds site that is today 64th on Alexa’s global ranking, 11th in the US. Craig was kind enough to grant me an interview in which we discuss some of the endeavors in which Craig believes and has invested, including military veterans, voting, women in tech, trustworthy journalism and peer to peer lending. In this discussion, we also explore Craig’s inspirations and his best reads. Doing good with the help of technology and passion.
