Craigslist Founder Craig Newmark to Speak at Google in DC October 3

by on September 29, 2008 · 13 comments

Register here for what looks like a very interesting event:

 In 1995, Internet entrpreneur Craig Newmark started Craigslist — an online community featuring free classified ads. Thirteen years later, Craigslist serves 567 cities in 55 countries and is a good example of how the power, reach and openness of the Internet can help turn a simple idea into a global phenomenon.

As part of the ongoing “Google D.C. Talks” series, Craig — who still helps users in a customer service role at Craigslist — will speak about the founding of the future of Craigslist, the future direction of the Internet, and what public policy makers can do to keep the Internet and American democracy free, open and vibrant. For anyone who’s ever bought or sold a used piece of furniture or concert tickets on Craigslist, you won’t want to miss hearing from the man who started it all.

Speaker:
Craig Newmark, Customer Service Rep & Founder, craigslist

Moderator:
Alan Davidson, Director, Public Policy and Government Affairs, Google
