SDForum: Craig Newmark

Tonight we’re going to the first SDForum Distinguished Speaker Series of 2005 featuring Craig Newmark (founder of Craigslist). They’ve been able to get some notable speakers recently. I’m a big fan of Craigslist and will be interested to hear his side of the story.

Update: Really enjoyed Craig’s presentation. Hearing him talk in person gives you a good sense of how Craigslist has evolved. My friend Phil wrote a nice summary worth reading: Craigslist and Viral Marketing. Craig posted his presentation online as well: Craigslist Challenges (PowerPoint format).

Update 2005-02-04: IT Conversations has published the audio from Craig’s talk. It’s worth listening to a second time.
